I have a 300 Weatherby Mag 29 inch barrel 1-10 twist, I call Berger Bullets and they told me the recommended twist for 185 vdl is 1-12 or faster, aim looking for some input in this before i expend $50 in a box and then find out that my twist of 1-10 is to fast.:confused:

Curious as to why you didn't ask berger when you had them on the phone. But if the person you talked to said 12 or faster I don't think a 10 would be too fast .....you could always call and double check or e-mail Eric Stecker

The key words being "or faster" ........ you will be just fine with your 10-tw

Happy Shooting

Hey Paco,
Looks like this has already been answered, but yes, your 1x10 is just fine. The Berger listings for twist aren't "recommended" twists, they're minimums for stability. Given a choice between a little too fast, or not quite fast enough, you want to go with too fast every time. You're golden here.
