    I have a 7mm rem. mag factory sporter barrel I think the twist is 91/4 or 91/2, would these twist work with the 162 hornady Amax bullet?

    Yes, I´ve been shooting them and have had the best accuracy in my rifle (rem ks 7 mag factory barrel your same twist). Just push them over 2800 ft/s.

    I shoot them in my 10" twist 7STW and they are very accurate. Your barrel will handle bullets even heavier/longer than the 162gr A-Max.
