what twist do I need for 168smk

I have a 280ACK with a 10 twist Hart barrel would that twist stablize the 168SMK's.

I have an 11 twist PacNor Super Match that stablizes the 168 SMK. (28" long 7mm RUM)

Call Dan Lilja.

My 9 1/4 twist 7mm Mag and 7/300 Weatherby shoots that bullet very well.

Typically, the 1-9" would be the best, the 1-10 should do fine though, out of an Ackley.

I, too, have a Pac-Nor Super Match at 28" and a 9 twist and it seem to work great for the 168's. But, honestly, I have had my best luck with a 10 twist and, ESPECIALLY, a gain twist bbl with this particular bullet.
