Re: WTB 6.5 barrel for 264 win mag help
A 9 twist will shoot those bullets well but so will a 8 twist. If you are ever going to shoot other longer bullets than the 120 ttsx I would get an 8 twist. With the 264 Win mag the longer the barrel the better. Shortest should be 26". I have a 9 twist Shilen #4 that the smith left me 27 3/4" of barrel out of a 28" blank. It is a screamer. It does 3350 fps with 130 gr Accubonds with 66.5 grs Retumbo and outstanding accuracy and really good case life. Kills deer like lightening struck them.
