    M-Tecs replied to a thread 223 bullet twist rate? in Swaging
    With that bullet any of common twists will work but what is going to be the most accurate. This is based on the 6mm BR but it covers the accuracy related considerations with the different twist rates. http://www.6mmbr.com/barrelFAQ.html

    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...
