What is the best barrel twist for a 264 winchester magnum, if you are shooting 140 grain bullet.
The best twist depends on bulletlenght and the velocity you will get. General:
Best twist = (caliber x caliber x 150) : bulletlenght.
That means: .264 x .264 x 150 : 1.045(?) = 10, so twist 1 on 10 inches.
RPM = 720 x V0 : twist in inches
I've spent countless hours either on my hands and knees or bent over, messing up my back, looking for blood. One such instance I remember most was a hog hunt a few years ago in Mississippi. I had never shot a hog so when I poked a hole in this guy; I was determined to find him. Wearing snake leggings, I crawled on my hands and knees through the briars and the brambles and bushes where a rabbit wouldn't go. I found a spot of blood here and there but never the pig. And lucky for me, I didn't find...
