Ooooops!

I meant to say what most every body will tell you, not what every body has told you.
Sorry!

    My .308 with a 1/12 Lilja does = with 168 & 175 SMK. However, its best 5-shot group was with 134 7 ogive BIB bullets. GO figure. Wheat, email me and I'll send you some results.

    Part of the reason for so much confusion over bullet weights and barrel twist is because it is not the bullet weight but rather the length that dictates what spin is required.

    There is a historical correlation between heavier bullets and the length of bullet but new manufacturing techniques and methods are starting to skew this relationship.

    Take for instance a 150gr traditionally manufactured .308 bullet and measure it alongside a 150gr solid brass bullet, a 150gr alloy HP and a 150gr steel core FMJ - all of them are very different beasts that behave very differently.

    (sorry for the necro but no one had mentioned this aspect)

    Most folks shoot 175gr SMK for matches and other are moving out
    to the 208 Amax with a BC of .648 and using RL-17....
    Lots of information on Snipershide about this luck......
