    The H&G 68 is popular . I have a knock off 45-200SWC . It would be tough to beat a 452-200 RNFP 6C for production though.

    The twist and rpm will effect jacketed . Cast is less able to stand the forces . I've had the "luxury" of blowing up cast well inside the load window . I've also put to paper 35 cal holes from an 06' with a fast twist . (Apparently the 8.5" 06' bbl...

    I match jacketed accuracy from a 55 gr fmj to my NOE 225-55 @62 gr with H322 I do however give up about 500 fps for the twist from the 222s 1-12 @24" to 16" 1-8 AR for the same bullet with comparable load levels . It also gives up 900 fps to a...

    You could snag a 300BO Axis trade off the 223 mag for a 308/243 stagger feed and get a 35 Remington, 762-36 or 6.8 bolt head . You'll need to buy or build a bbl vice/wrench and get a Savage bbl nut wrench and a fired 300bo and a new 30-30 case...
