    Thanks for all the great replies to my previous post. Here's another question.....

    I'm probably going to rebarrel my deer rifle in .280Rem. I plan to shoot 140 and 150 grain bullets (mostly factory stuff). What rate of twist would you use?

    I build a number of 280 and 280AIs every year. Great caliber!
    For most 1 in 9 works well for 150 to 180 gr bullets, if going to use the lighter bullets 1 in 10
