    M-Tecs replied to a thread 223 bullet twist rate? in Swaging

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 223 bullet twist rate? in Swaging
    Per the OP its for BT swage dies. Jackets will be from 22 cases. Normally I recommend faster twists for jacketed bullets but for jackets from 22 cases over spinning seems to magnify any imbalances. With a bullet like a Nosler Ballistic Tip or...
