I have a new project, its a .260 on a Remi short action. I need to find the right barrel twist. In shooting Times Long Range Rifles the auther Sheppard Kelly states SAAMI standardized the twist @1:9 but many match shooters suggested the faster 1:8 twist to ensure stablization for long heavy match bullets out to 1000 yards. Will I have a problem here? I will have my barrel @24 inches in length. I will be shooting deer well over 300yards along with some other critters. This rifle will be my own version of the M40A5.. But it will be chambered in a .260. I would like to know what you would recomend in barrel twist for this cailbre? and what bullet weight and design would you recomend..I shoot the A-MAX in my .223 and I was thinking of the SST boat tail for Deer in the .260 and the A or V-MAX for the critters. thanks for all the input.
