I don't know who recommends the 8.5 twist but the 1 in 9 or 1 in 9.25 is perfect !!!!
At 1000 yards the 1 in 9.25 is the preferred twist in a 7 Rem Mag at 3100+ ft/sec and
the rum will bump the velocity buy several hundred feet per second faster than the
There are lots of powders that will do well in the big RUM 7828,H1000,Retumbo,H5010
