    Has anyone tried this projectile in a 1-10 twist barrel?
    I am thinking about giving them a go in my 240.

    I tried them in a 24" 1in10 .243 also. Wish I could tell I got them to shoot, but I didn't. Tried with 4350, 4831, 3031, and Varget with them touching the lands and various jump lengths. Just couldn't get them to shoot under a minute and a half, finally gave up and went to 87 gr v-maxs and have not looked back. Getting 1/2 minute with them (don't have the load with me). Some people have said that the 95's will shoot out of a 1 in 10. Maybe they will, but they would not out of my rifle. Give 'em a try they just mite work out of yours. Good luck.

    I was told that if you can push them really fast they'll work. I shoot a 6x284 with a 1-10 twist. I was pushing at 3,500+ most of my targets looked like small buck "shot patterns" So another thumbs down from queer Kalifornia.
