Assuming a 14-15" barrel in 308 winchester shooting ONLY 165gn to 240(or heavier) gn bullets - what is a good twist rate - im assuming 1:10, but would 1:9 be better?? any suggestions?

also - was wondering if anyone can recommend a flat shooting bullet for 308 that will give xint penetration, and weighs at least 200gn - thank you - steve

Steve, got a buddy of mine that's into the SS pistols like few i've ever known or even heard of for that matter. You might want to drop him a line @ [email protected]. His name's Ernie Bishop, and he's really into LR with SS pistols.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
