    Hey,

    Could someone tell me the twist rate of this rifle in .300 WSM? Purchased in 2007.

    Cheers,

    I would make a guess and say 1:10. If you want to check it yourself, just patch a cleaning rod fairly snug so that it doesn't slip, insert it part way into the bore, mark the rod then carefully push the rod on in until you get one full rotation. Mark the rod again, remove it from the bore and measure the distance between marks. This should give you a pretty accurate idea ......Rich
