Re: New Barrel for .220 swift
[ QUOTE ]
thinking of re-barrel for the swift...
1 in 8 or 1 in 9 instead of the 1 in 14 it is now.
want to go to heavier 75 or 80 grains to fight this Western Wind....
thoughts and opinions please... Thanks!

Good thinking. I have a 40XB with a 14" twist, .22-250. The barrel's still good, but I'm going to have it rebarreled because the 14" twist is toooo slow for the current crop of long range bullets.
I'll get a 9" - it'll stabilize the 75 A-Max - I think the 80's and heavier need a 8" or faster.
