JLK projectiles and twist rate

I would appreciate contact info for JLK projectiles. After reading about them on this forum I am interested in trying the 52 gr in my 222 AI.
I usually run this weight at 3550 fps.
What would be the optimum twist rate for these pills at this velocity?

    The 52 gr. bullet is a FBHP with a BC of .302-- 14 twist (i think-- i'm at work now, will have to check when i get home). the 60 gr. LD is .339-- recommended for a 12 twist. Will get you his # tomorrow. Might be best to talk to Jimmy directly-- he's a good guy and will fill you in on all the answers.

    Not sure of a number for Jimmy but this link shows some of his bullets and a current phone number for OK Weber.
