As I understand it, the button does some bulging as is goes down the barrel and that might cause some changes in the twist somehow but wouldn't the designer account for that so the end result is a 1in 8 twist?
Can anyone enlighten me?
If it is made by a reputable barrel maker and he tells you it's a 1 in 8 then it is.
Be careful of anything you hear second hand .people will tell you almost anything and normally
it was told to them by a friend.
Barrel makers don't need to lie because it can/will come back on them and hurt sales.
I use both cut and buttoned barrels and I always get the twist rate that I requested.
