Re: light bullet in heavy twist-heavy bullet in light twist?
Thanks for bring this topic up; I've been doing a lot of contemplating and speculating on this very topic.
S1 as always, thank you very much for posting what you have. I've been wondering just how "low" I can go with a 6mm project with regard to bullet weight/ The barrel sports a 1:9.33" twist, and was designed almost exclusively with Berger's 95gr VLD in mind. However, I have a couple other bullets I'd love to try; namely the 88gr lowdrag and the 69gr lowdrag. I know the 88 should work just fine, but was a little...concerned about the 69 grainer. If you think this sucker will work... My primary concern would be thinner jackets found on such a bullet, but perhaps that's an unfounded concern? I would NOT be pressing the velocity; like you, I'd be using it for short-range, <minimum noise> applications. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
