Will a 10 twist barrel stabilize a 168 SMK????

I am looking to load up some 168 gr SMK's for my .300 RUM, the barrel is a 10 twist 6 groove. I will probably use Retumbo, was wondering if the bullet is too light for the 10 twist.

Thanks and Seasons Greetings,
Andrew

    It will shoot fine as far as twist is concerned. There will be plenty of RPMs to stabilize this bullet. In fact it will have far more then it needs but generally this does not degrade accuracy as long as the bullet can handle the strain and this one should.

    As Kirby said. 150's are no problem either.

    Good topic on this at BR central, I'll see if I can post a link.
