    I am starting to get together parts for a 280 AI build.... Just wondering what barrel twist you guys would recommend to shoot 168gr bullets out of a 24" tube. I was looking at going with a 1:9...

    Thanks
    Andrew

    YEP - that's what I'd go with. I have a 1-10 twist in my 280AI and have used the 168 gr with no problem but if I was to do it again I'd go 1-9.

    +1 For a 1 in 9 twist.
