Well at least in my case my 2 competition rifles (and one hunting rifle) are all 1-8" twist. You think they'll need faster than that?

Going to try some out in Pe Ell next weekend. If they're as tough as other accubonds I'm imagining they're going to work nicely on rams.

That I came across these at a retail establishment is pretty nifty.

I think an 8 would work but a 9?????? I don't think so. An 8 twist is very common on the new 6.5s and should do the job.

No great shock. Went back to pick up a box or 2 a couple days later. Even at $45 a box they sold out (they had a pretty decent pile of these).

Guess the world is picking up on the advantages of 6.5mm pills. Now if only Powder Valley would start carrying them. As Winne the Pooh says. "Oh bother!"
