Seems as if Hawk in WY is in the same boat as I am...See the thread on the 7mm Dakota further down the page in this subforum. Hawk in WY saw keyhole impacts with the 168 LRX using a 1:9 twist barrel at 6200 ft. Seems unlikely you'l get it to stabilize using 1:10.
Strictly mule deer. I'd like to eventually get out to the 500-600 yard range once my optics are upgraded. The VLD would be perfect except that I am looking for a copper bullet.GW -what are you shooting at?? a 140 vld has less drop and less windage out to 500-600. the speed makes for the bc. need to shoot further??
Just the boat where you are trying to get your bullets to stabilize. I wanted to use the 168 LRX but I don't think that it will get to what I want. Going to Use the 145 instead.Not sure what boat I'm in at the moment.
I did get the 145 Gr. LRX to shoot to my satisfaction.
As soon as this is put to bed, I will turn my attention to the 168.
Berger stability app says 1:9 at 6,200 feet should stabilize the bullet.
My own $.02 worth: 1:10 probably won't.
