Re: twist rate

a 1-10" twist will handle anything between 55 grain and 100 grain.

check hodgdon for load data; they are online

Re: twist rate

I have 1:10 in my .243 started out with 95 to 100 grainers with no luck. First load with 87gr Berger VLD with H4831sc did the trick.

I have a box of 87gn vmaxes unopened that I didn't feel the need to try.

Re: twist rate

I shoot a sierra 70 grain bthp matchking with 42 grains of 4320 it is very accurate. I have either shot or seen kids shoot prob 50 deer from 25 yards out to 350 yards never seen one move since going to that bullet combination 25 yrs ago.It will cut a groundhog half in two as well. My rifle is a stock 700 rem bdl shoots 1/2 groups at 100 yrds.
