Re: Twist rate on .308 for medium range
The 12 twist will work just fine for the 168 and 175 SMK. The 175 will remain stable out to 1k with the 12x provided you launch them with at least 2400 FPS. No need to over spin your bullets.
I you need to shoot a bullet much bigger than the 175, then think about a 11 or 10x
Or hey if a 10x gives you the confidence you need, by all meens use a 10.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
