Re: Too much twist?
I am running a 240 Laser with a 28 inch 1-8 twist Krieger barrel.
The thing to worry about is not over stabilization, it is tearing the jacket off the bullet. If the bullet holds together there is no such thing as over stabalizing a bullet. I found out last weekend that the 6mm Sierra 80s and 100s just will not hold together at 3,700 fps in a 1-8 I am also told that the 107 Sierra will not hold together at the velocity of the Laser.
However, the 107 Berger VLD will stay with you all day long at 3,800.
Now to drop down in weight from the 107 Berger you need to switch to the Nosler BT bullet which I understand will stay in one piece down to 55s pushed at 4,300. Nosler brags that you can not tear their jackets off. I have talked to the previous owner of my 240 gun who says that he tried and tried to blow the Noslers up but they held together.
The 240 laser is a 280 with the shoulder moved forward .250 inches and changed to 45 degrees then necked down to 6mm. It is very similar to the old 240 Gibbs. It is a LR rifle built for rockchucks and ground squirrels.
Those that beat their guns into plows will plow for those that do not.
