1:9.5 twist...the most common one. We know what you mean. Use 150 grain Scirocco seated a couple thousandths into the lands with whatever the max charge of H4831SC turns out to be in your rifle, and you'll be set for near and far, big and small!I have a Vanguard with 9:5 twist. The heaviest bullet it will stabilize is 155gr.
Do NOT ignore elevation changes! INSIST upon checking zero of your rifle when moving more than 1000 ft, if at all possible. This mistake cost me the buck of 10 lifetimes over! Everything perfect except trajectory of the bullet!7 mag is always long action
The xbolt rotary mag allows 3.6" no problem
Buy an mcarbo trigger spring to reduce the pull weight
Your bullet weight will depend on your altitude, bullet speed, bullet length, and twist rate--- punch your numbers into bergers twist rate calculator to get your answer.
My lr stalker with same twist as yours shoots 2 bullets lights out-- trigger time I use the 162 eld-m bullet -- under 3/4 moa everytime.---- hunting I use the 143 hammer hunter, it is stupid accurate, my best group was 1/4 moa, my worst was 3/4moa.
50mm scopes usually require high rings, check with ring/base manufacture fir best info
For 20moa based you can buy egwguns -
Talley, and browning sells one right on their website (Google is your friend)
I love my xbolt.
Sciroccos have never shot well jammed for me. Went down that rabbit hole too many times. I personally have found the sweet spot .030”-.060” jump. Swift will recommend plenty of jump as well.Use 150 grain Scirocco seated a couple thousandths into the lands with whatever the max charge of H4831SC turns out to be in your rifle, and you'll be set for near and far, big and small!
I like the Remington 700 with the 26" barrel , so I would probably go with the one that offers the longer barrel and if you can get it in a heavy barrel that's even better.Interesting. As I have said, the Tikka T3x SuperLite is still an option with its 9.5" twist and 22" barrel, but I have concerns about the short barrel. What would make the difference between the two both having 9.5" twists, besides barrel length and OAL allowed with magazine?
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
