What twist for .243 Win.?

I'm in the market for a rifle in .243 Win.. Would a 1:10 twist be O.K. for bullets in the 75-105 gr. range? I'll probably very seldom ever go less than 75 gr., but would likely stay more in the 95-105 gr. range.

    10 twist will not stabalize the 105s. Get an 8 or 9 and be happy!!

    My 9.5 twist will not stabalize the 105 a-max.

    I was considering a Howa Supreme Varminter, either a complete rifle or a build on the barreled action. It comes with a 1:10 twist, so I don't really have much choice.

    What I'm really looking to do is to get a rifle in .243 Win that I can comfortably shoot at the range, maybe a little long-range competition on occasion, and then be able to use it for deer and antelope. Little to no true "varmint" hunting with it.

    Perhaps I should choose another action/barrel combo since it's only available in the 1:10 twist.
