    Ruger America rifle twist too Fast ?

    I am shooting a NOE 225-55 MX3 grain GC in a 223 XP100 with a 1-12 twist very well. ( 19 grains H 4895/ no filler ) Searching for a rifle now & Ruger comes with a 1-9 twist. Is this twist too fast for my favorite boolit ?

    The Ruger American Rifles have a 1-8" twist.

    My Ruger American likes the 52gr Speer and Berger HP's and 20gr. Rel7, so I don't think you'll have problems with a 55gr boolit once you find the right load. I've found that it is VERY particular about bullet seating depth and prefers them to be seated rather long. I haven't shot any cast through it so no help there.
