I'm putting together a 22-250 with a 13" twist. How heavy of bullets will that stabilize? I realize that the length really determines stabilization and other factors like elevation and humidity play a role. I'm just looking for a general weight range to start with.

Up to 60 grains...unless you go with the Sierra 63 gr. SMP..a "short fat" bullet designed for just that kind of thing. Great deer bullet, and accurate!

Why did you decide on a 13" twist? Special order?

Picked up the new/unused barrel for $50. I was guessing it was a 12" twist - Surprise Surprise!! I was also told it was an ER Shaw, but it turns out to be a Douglas !!

I think your twist is just fine for the 22-250.
