will a 243 win with a 1-10 twist stablize a 105 a-max ?
Nope. I'd try the 87 gr Vmax.
thanks, do you have any idea about a 6-284
It may work in the 6-284. I've never tried it though. That extra velocity may give you enough RPMs to stabalize it though.
A 1-9 will work very well in the 6-284 with 105 gr VLD bullets. 1-10 will be a bit slow I would say, even in a 30" pipe.
Conventional wisdom says a 1-8 twist is the correct one but I have found in the 6-284 with the Berger and A-Max bullets, the 1-9 works much better and allows a much higher top velocity potential without bullet failure or accuracy decrease.
With the 107 gr SMK, 1-8 or 1-9 will work fine as it has a thicker jacket. Also, I would stay away from the 3 groove barrels if you want to shoot the Berger or A-Max. Order a 6 groove as they are easier on these thin jacketed bullets and will allow you to drive them faster with better accuracy.
Theres always the 95gr Berger...
thanks for the info guys
