Re: Loads for 162 gr Amax in 7mm-08
Not to put a Fine Point on the matter, but at what altitude? The closer to sea level, and the colder it will be, the more Rate of Twist matters. Say for instance, you are at 4000' ASL at 20 degree's F. , in that case a 9.5 would likely be okay. The higher the altitude, and the warmer it is, the slower the twist rate you can honestly get by with. In all honesty, I would prefer a 9 twist or even better an 8.5 twist for ALL Climate shooting.
That all being said, You will most likely be okay.
Good shooting sir,
