    Welcome to long range hunting!
    It's easy to check the twist. Run a tight fitting patch 3/4 of the way down the barrel, then back and forth a little until it is freely moving in both directions. Take a piece of scotch tape about 1 1/2 inches long and wrap it around the cleaning rod exactly even with the end of your bore guide, sticking the two sticky sides of the tape together forming a pointer pointing straight up. Pull the rod back until the tape pointer points straight up again. Measure from the tape to the bore guide. The distance is your twist rate.
