    Numrich barrel twist

    I have a Numrich 28Ē 45-70 Buffalo Barrel on my roller #5. Does anyone know the rate of twist in these. Iíve searched the net and forums high and low and canít find anything.

    The one I had was a very heavy octagon contour and was 1-18 twist.

    Well I’d guess this one qualifies as heavy. It’s at least 1” across the flat from breach to muzzle.

    Ditto the one I owned, Numrich heavy with a 18" twist.

    Mine also had very little throat.
    You can measure it easy enough to be sure. Carefully insert a cleaning rod from the muzzle and install a brush and wrap a patch around it. pull into barrel so its well engaged in the rifling. At this point a single wrap of tape even with the muzzle leaving a tail at 12:00 aligned with front sight. Pull rod out until tail makes 1 revolution and measure distance from muzzle to wrap of tapes edge. this will tell you pretty close what twist it is. 1 turn in ???

    Why don't you measure the twist rate ?
    Midway and Creedmoor Sports both have nice you tube video's showing how...it's easy and you will know for sure what the rate of twist is...no guessing .
