Yesterday I ordered a 7mm Hart barrel to build a 1000 yard rifle on. I ordered it with a 1 in 8 twist. The more I think about it would a 1 in 9 have been a better way to go? I intend to shoot the 168 Berger VLD and possibly the 180 Berger if the 168 don't work. Any one have any experience or thoughts on this.

I have a 1 in 11 twist Pac Nor Super Match on a 7 MM RUM which has no problem stablizing 168 gr MKs.

Berger Bullets suggest 1-9" twist for the 180 gr and it would work for the 168 gr to.
good day.

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

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

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
