    Does anyone know the twist rate for a Remington Factory 700 .243...............?? I would like to shoot the 95gr Berger VLD Hunting bullet and they do recommend the 1x9 twist.

    A good friend and I are both shooting the 95 berger vld hunting out of rem 243's. His a model 7 amd mine a 600 mohawk but according to remington they have the same twist rate as yours. Anyway they shoot great for us with 41.5 grains of h4350
