    Depends a bit on your conditions and the size of the cartrige.

    The 1-9 has been working in most of the magnum cartriges.

    I have a couple of f-classers shooting the 180 hybred with 8.7 and 8.8 twists in straight 284 winchesters and the accuracy is excellent.

    Tank,

    I like your approach...
    1:8 twist with lots of English..

    Shoot for the heart and let the spin drift give you access to the whole neck line if you're too conservative with the wind call. gun)
