View Full Version : RATE OF TWIST Question for a 308

01-06-2009, 12:40 PM
I just picked up one of these barrels, , TC Encore Pro Hunter 308, to shoot some 180 partitions for deer hunting inside 100 yards.

The indicate rate of twist is 1:10. Is this adequate for 180 grain 30-caliber bullets?

that rate of twist is sufficient for up to a 240 grain bullet

Youll do great inside 100 yards and alot further!!! Alot of AR are chambered in 308 w/a 1/10 and alot of people prefer the 180gr. GOOD LUCK!!!
