Don't know for sure with yours, but my SPS .223 with a 26" barrel has a 1-14 twist. Shoots up to 60-65 grain bullets well, but is an absolute dream with 55 NBT's. Shoots em fast and leaves little tiny holes in the paper at 200 yds.

The twist is 1/9 with the 20" heavy barrel.

I have one put away for me at the gun shop, I'm probably going to get it. I did a bunch of research on them and apparently they shoot good, anything from 50 to 77gr bullets.
