Not sure what the twist is I have a xp barrel that I just took off and installed a new barrel for a customer the factory barrel is a 260 rem I will check the twist for you in the morning.

As for loading start just like a rifle with rifle loads and work up to the best accuracy load just like a rifle.

Re: XP-100R 260 barrel twist....

The barrel will stabilize a 130 grain Berger. I believe I measured it at 1-9.

I am using IMR4350 but when I run out of it will switch to Varget. The IMR4350 gives decent groups.

As was said just use your reloading manual and work up.
