    Can anyone tell me what the twist is for this. And what bullet weight you have had good luck with stabilizing. I have one that will shout 1/2 moa with factory cheap remington stuff in 50gr. Would like to step up to heavier bullets and kill a doe or two.
    Thanks,
    T

    I'd sure think it was a 1-14 twist, as I recall most were, unless special order.

    The twist is 1 in 14''

    And a good hunting bullet is the 55 gr SBT.

    The 52 grain is a Match bullet and does not work well on game.

    If you have the need for speed the 40grain Ballistic Tip is amazing and will
    shoot in a 1 in 14 twist.

    The 60 gr + bullets may not shoot well in the XP.
