Twist for 338?

Looking to build a 338, probably Lapua. Is 1-10 good enough for the 250-300 gr range? Krieger offers a 1-9.35tw and I'm wondering if that would be too fast for the 250s. What are your opinions? I will probably want to shoot the 300s most of the time but I would like to be able to play with the lighter bullets. Thanks for your help.

    Mine is a 1 in 10 and it has sent close to 1500 of the 300 grainers with very good results to past 2000 yards.

    Bought the 1 in 10 today. 1.350x.930 31". This will be going in front of a Surgeon 1581R in a McMillan A5 with a Jewell and 4 port muscle brake.
