    Will a 1:8.5 twist barrel shoot the 140 Berger's VLD's? I have a Krieger barrel 1 in 8.5 twist on a Savage action in 264 Win mag. I was wanting to reload some 140's for it but not sure if my twist rate is fast enough. Any help advise would be appreciated.

    Yes, 1:8.5 twist should stabilize the 140VLD
