Looking into a barrel for a 7 WSM to shoot 162 A-max or 175 SMK? Did some searching and can't decide between an 8 or 9 twist. Any help would be greatly appreciated. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

+1 on the 9 twist. I have a 9.5 twist that stabilizes the 175's at 1K. But I think I will go 9 on the next one.
