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?

Best place for you is OK Weber in Oregan and he has website. will have to do search, do not have the info handy. Other is Accuracy One in PA, John Hoover. They are only two stocking dealers for JLK

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.
