    Have a new A bolt on its way,along with some 180 bergers . I am having a hard time finding much load data for this . Can some of you supply what loads you are having good luck with. Thanks

    Go to the Berger website and email them. They will send you load data. Or you can pm me your email address and I can email what they sent me for the 140, 168 and 180 gr bergers too you.

    1/10 twist. I emailed berger on Sun no reply yet.

    I think the 10 twist may be too slow for the 180s. Berger recommends 9 or faster. See attachment.

    Does that mean bullet will not stablize , bad accuracy? Already ordered 180's but my brother has some 168 bergers for me to try also.

    Yes, it could very well mean bad accuracy due to stabilization issues. Try them and see. You never know with factory barrels. I would almost lay money though that the 168s will be much better than the 180s in that rifle.
