These are around 1.76" long so I'm pretty sure these are short enough to work from a 1:9. I'll know for sure soon enough.

They didn't work--though they were very close. Some of the holes were almost round. With the RBBT I'm just going to need a slightly shorter bullet with my 1:9 twist. Nice as those 265's are, when I originally spec'd the 1:9 twist I was planning on shooting 250's. Guess I'll have to go back to what I had planned. Those 265's are nice though!

Thought I'd let you guys who may be planning future projects know--probably need a 1:8.something for these. Oh, the load I used was 98 grains of US869. They went 2875 from my 26.7" barrel. That was a bit hot, I'd reduce that load by about two grains putting it into the range I mentioned above with a very mild load.
