- east central fl. /n.c. pa.
Well its not a question of being mad, its simply a question that is best answered by having actually observed what takes place.It wasn't a post to make you mad. It was a post to share data and perspective - we can all learn, me included. Facts make reality, if its not based on fact its just opinion.
I used to live in Pa and have killed maybe 60 deer there and yes, the distance we are talking about is way past what I would call ethical - this is an ELR posting forum, past 1000 yards. Right?
Help me understand why a heavier and longer BS bullet would require a slower twist?
And what takes place in eastern states like PA, isnt necessarily the same as in other places.
While hunting long range, the conditions will determine how far we can shoot, not the choice of cartridge or bullet.
As for the twist, (general rule) is that the longer heavier bullets in any caliber require a slower twist barrel. And beyond that, not all bullets of the same weight in a particular caliber will require the same twist.
And the best way to find all that out is to see it for yourself or have an experienced gunsmith advise you.
