If I was going to use the 115s, think I would do what the guys shooting them LR are doing and use the 7.5 twist at least.

6 MM 115gr Bullets Accuracy

+1 for the 7.5 twist for 115s. I have not had good experiances with 8T barrels and 115s even with 6x284. Do not plan on shooting the bergers. I have lost 3 or 4 f-class matches due to vanishing 115gr berger bullets. I have not tried the JLKs but the DTACs work well.

I think the 1-7.5 will be what I go with . Do you know if I will gain much velocity if I go with 28 inch barrel over 26.
