    14-15 " twist rate and slower ammo

    Bill & others!

    Have you tested 14-15" twist rate with slower ammo?

    I shooted on 80s with "gunfool" PTK (R.I.P) with TOZ 22 LR rifle.First THIS form it game from factory.Then we finished the chamber and lapped the barrel.

    It shoots amazing groups to 100 m with slow ammo old Lapua Subsonic.(If I remember right it was something 950-980 feet/s).
    I think one reason was smaller wind drift with slow ammo.

    I think this TOZ barrel has 14-15" twist rate.

    Has somebody experiences of tighter twist rate with slow ammo?

    BR, Timo

    :

    I've fooled with 15 twist barrels, but not with super slow ammo.....

    Remington made some of their 40-X's, a few years ago, with 14 twist barrels, I was told.....

    If they were, they didn't set the world on fire......maybe no one had any super slow ammo to try in them.

    Your friend, BC
