Can anyone tell me the pros and cons of a 1-12" twist barrel I will be shooting 55 grain projectiles I have had a 1-14" rifle and could not stabilize 55 grain and was stuck with 50's
The pros, It will work fine up to about 65 grs.
The cons, If you ever want to shoot 70-80 gr target bullets you will find yourself in your current situation again.
I just ordered an 8" twist barrel to shoot mostly 64 gr varmint bullets from a .223 Rem.
