    Assuming a 14-15" barrel in 308 winchester shooting ONLY 165gn to 240(or heavier) gn bullets - what is a good twist rate - im assuming 1:10, but would 1:9 be better?? any suggestions?

    also - was wondering if anyone can recommend a flat shooting bullet for 308 that will give xint penetration, and weighs at least 200gn - thank you - steve

    Steve, got a buddy of mine that's into the SS pistols like few i've ever known or even heard of for that matter. You might want to drop him a line @ bishop@ourtownusa.com. His name's Ernie Bishop, and he's really into LR with SS pistols.
