Their .223 is a 1:9 twist.
Just an FYI.
I was just about to dissagree with you, until I checked for myself. Your right they have listed now that the precision varminter has a 1-12" twist for the 22-250. When they first came out they had a 1-9", I just read an article in Novembers shooting times, which I have right infront of me, where the author tested a Savage Long range precision varminter with a 1-9" barrel.
It might be that they have changed the twist rate. Which would be a shame. Probably because non-reloaders having problems with their lighter bullets. Just speculation, though.
