    Just got a Remmy 700 takeoff barrel for cheap to mess around with... its 24 inches long. These 24 inchers are 1 in 9 1/8th correct?

    thats what the site says under specs, at least for the sps. thats somewhat unfortunate for me becuase I just bought one thinking that it had a 8.125 but now i see the 9.125. might not be able to stablize the 95gr bergers i just got. ohh well, it should handle the 65's pretty good.

    The 9 1/8th works very well with 100's

    9 1/8th will do a 105 fine. I've even heard of guys running 105AMAXes out of a 1 in 10.
