Go to lilja barrels and his site has recomended twist rates for different bullet weights in any
Heavier bullets require faster twist but if you go with two much twist lighter bullets may not
work well and slower twist may not work with heavy bullets so try and pick a twist rate that
will accommodate the range of bullets you intend to use, not just one bullet.
