Berger recommends 9 twist for their 95grain VLD....

Just saying the 95 VLDs work great in my 243 SPS and my sons 6mm VLS both have 9 1/8 twist. Do what you want, 1/8 of a twist won't be a deal breaker with the 95s

My friend shoots the 105 Bergers out of a 1-10 twist Howa and it is awesome, he's pulled the rug on a pile of deer out past 600yrds now with it and a few elk as well in closer. We are a 5612 ft elevation, the higher you are the less twist you need also so we get a little help there. I would try them for sure!

Re: Remington 700 sps-v 243win questions

Im at about 3500 feet so I guess the only real way is to just try it and see, Im sure i'll figure something out, I have a long way to go until Im testing bullets, havent even purchased the rifle yet, just planning ahead. I guess I could always do another stevens build and then I wouldnt even have to worry about twist rate, but im ready for a new flavor, to many savages/stevens in the corner.

Well I'm about at sea level, or as close as you can get. The two rifles that I mentioned will not shoot the 105s or bigger with the 9 1/8 twist.

Re: Remington 700 sps-v 243win questions

the difference in a 100 vs a 105 is small. i have killed a lot of game with a .243; 250+ coyotes , mule deer , coues, 3 elk. all before there were the over 100 grain bullets. that was with 1-10 twist sako. it shot half inch groups. now needs a new barrel. there are of bullets/loads that will work, all the bullets 85 to 100 grains for deer. the remington sps varmint is a great gun. my 700 varmint with a hart barrel shoots .1,.2,.3 dependeing on me. i won the first 1000 yard match i ever shot in with the hart 1-12 twist and a mixture of 88 bergers and 87 hornbthp. the .243 is an accurate and deadly cartridge. have fun . roninflag
