Jordan, If the twist rate question is aimed at my question, I don't know. I didn't have the gun built, I have shot some 160's and they shoot good. I have tried to use the patch & cleaning rod trick but have not had any luck with a consistent figure.

Daniel,

Knowing even the approximate twist rate would help, as it would give us an idea of what bullets we should be recommending loads for.

Jordan, If I took an average of the readings, it would be about 1:9 or 1:10 or maybe somewhere in between. Thanks Daniel

I would probably substitute the 162 ELD-M for whatever 160gr bullet you were using, with otherwise the same load, and go with that.

Thanks, Jordan. I have been working some loads up with the 162 SST. I will give 162 ELD-M a try. Daniel
