    I think they will keyhole with the 1-12 twist as they did in my 22-250 rem 700,and my rem model 7 223. They are ment for 1-7/1-8 twist if you can get a couple from a friend try them before buying a box but I think you'll find they keyhole.

    Yup. Even 1:9 twist isn't always enough. 1:8 and they work just fine.

    i don't think you can do it. A 22-250 with a 1:12 twist will barely shoot 60 grain bullets
