Can anyone tell me what the twist is for this. And what bullet weight you have had good luck with stabilizing. I have one that will shout 1/2 moa with factory cheap remington stuff in 50gr. Would like to step up to heavier bullets and kill a doe or two.
Thanks,
T

I'd sure think it was a 1-14 twist, as I recall most were, unless special order.

The twist is 1 in 14''

And a good hunting bullet is the 55 gr SBT.

The 52 grain is a Match bullet and does not work well on game.

If you have the need for speed the 40grain Ballistic Tip is amazing and will
shoot in a 1 in 14 twist.

The 60 gr + bullets may not shoot well in the XP.

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

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
