:) Man, start THAT at 2800+ fps (26" barrel) and man, you'd HAVE a long rang rd that you could have a ball with.

I thought I read somewhere that the VLD projectiles require a different twist rate than what is normally standard in the rifles of the particular caliber they are in. Is that true? I've seen disclaimers in ads about them about something along this line, but I don't remember the particulars.

his site says that this 243 bullet needs

1 in 7" rifling twist, in other words, a custom barrel

What is typical in a .243? That sounds like a pretty quick twist rate to me.

Dunno, probably 1 in 10 or 1 in 12, tho

So, like I said, need a custom barrel for such bullets.
