    Hello. Thanks for having me. I live in central Arkansas and primarily hunt in Southeast Arkansas.

    I have a left hand Remington 700 LSS that I am thinking about rebarreling into an ultimate long range gun. I’ve been looking at barrels and twists. Any recommendations on the best twist rate to maximize distance with the 7RUM?

    Welcome to Lrh. Glad to have you on board. Most informative website on shooting by far
    There are here with more experience than me but seems like a 1 in 8 twist or one in 7 works good in the 7mm bore.

    1:8 should be plenty for 180+ grain bullets in that gun.
