Fast twist 243


Recommended Posts

I have a factory remington SPS varmint with 1:9125 twist 24” barrel. 

It shoots 105 amax well with N165 at just under 2900 FPS. 

There is an itch I have to put a faster twist shorter barrel on it. Make it a bit lighter and a bit pointier for deer and vermin, plus able to lob out successfully to longer range targets. Would like to stick with 105Amax but stay versatile enough for 87g and 58gr vmax. Maybe even heavier dtac’s. 

Would fast twist preclude the lighter bullets? Would shorter (18-20”) barrel be too slow for heavies, not just for deer legality but also range use? 

Is the itch worth the scratch?
