    I'm hoping my 8 twist will spin the 153. I think it probably will since it will stabilize the 150 smk

    I am wondering what twist will be needed for 250gr/153gr. I have a 300RUM in progress and its early enough to change my barrel twist? will 1-9 work or 1-8 be better choice?

    I'm guessing it'll act a lot like a Chinchaga bullet...no reason not to try it on game...many many "match" bullets are used very successfully on game.

    You're right, no doubt. My wife and I used the 147 ELD-M on antelope in Wyoming this year. Performed great!

    Midway has the twist rates. The 110 needs a 7.7, the 135 needs a 8.5, the 153 needs a 8, the 230 needs a 9, and the 250 needs a 8.5 twist

    Just read the email and watched video. Reminds me of Win. Silver tip bullets . Hornady is pumping out things do fast. Thier marketing people must be making some ching ching. I have some 6.5 , 119 gr. Match solid Cooper titanium flash tip I was wondering what would do on antelope and deer.
    Forgot to say they were Leigh.
