    Hi,
    I had a rem 260 rifle built, sadly I dont remember what twist it is.

    From the pics of the end cap of the barrel, I hope of these numbers means it is 1-8 twist?

    A pic from a 200 yard group.... I had a flyer and some wind this day, it was shooting 120 Nosler BT.

    I want to try 130 and 140 Berger bullets.

    Any way... thanks Kevin

    It's a 8 twist.

    8 twist. Will stabilize anything the 260 can shoot.

    There you go.

    I read it as an 8 twist as well.

    Step up to the 140s and enjoy.

    Good shooting BTW.

    It's easy enough to measure with a cleaning rod, and a tape measure. Put a mark on the cleaning rod (I use tape) and push a moderartely tight oiled patch though the bore allowing the rod to rotate with the rifling. Measure the distance to make one turn. I agree the barrel is probably 8" twist from the marking, but with the simple test you know for sure.
