I'm not sure why they should /would change the rate of twist for the 130gr bullet
because the recommended twist for the 6.5 is 120gr=1 in 10, 140gr = 1 in 9 twist,and
anything over 140gr should need a 1 in 8 twist.
I don't think you will have any problems with the 1 in 9 twist at all . in fact I think you chose
the right twist for your barrel. and the 120s,130s,and 140s should do well.
Just My opinion
