Thanks for any help!
Certain twist rates are required to stabilize certain bullets at normal velocities. Higher or lower
velocities than normal will have an effect on the twist and could change it.
If you are looking for a table of twist rates look on the www.Lilja
precision rifle barrels web site
under the FAQ section and there is lots of information on the selection of twist rates.
Hope this helps.
