Savage offers a 12 twist and a 9. Seems like the 12 would give me more bullet options than a standard 14. But it also seems a 9 would stabilize anything so why not just go with that. However common sense tells me if there were no disadvantages to the 9, everyone would just get that. So.. Would a 9 "overspin" standard factory loaded offerings? Are there even factory loads available to make a 9 twist worth bothering with? Does a faster twist reduce barrel life? Other things I haven't considered?
