    Hey guys,
    I have a friend that has a Rem 700 in 6mm Rem. heavy varmint contour barrel, I think the muzzle has a diameter of something like .830" but don't quote me on this. I would have mic'ed it but he doesn't have one and we weren't at my shop. He is wondering what the twist rate is in it. I think Remington has the 1-10 or is this still their 1-12? Thank you.

    If it is a remington factory barrel, it is a 1 in 9 1/8 . Remington has been using that twist on thier 6mms for a very long time. Good luck
