Well, my Remington Model 700 Classic in 8x57JS has a 1-9.5" twist rate and it shoots 220 gr Woodleigh round nose bullets very well.I had hoped the twist rates were faster for some looooong round nose bullets. I will stick to the 9.3s as they do well with the 285 gr RN. I should have known. Don't tell Leespeed I was considering going AWOL on the 9.3 to the 7.9. Krigevaer, did you find the same data on your Swede 7.9mms? Around 9.5 to ten? Thanks. Packy
Thanks for the welcome. I've been hanging out here for a few months but I just haven't posted much. I was hunting in South Africa back in 2005. But, sad to say, the rifle in the photo is a Remington 700 Classic in 8x57 and not a Husqvarna. Yeah, I'll go hang my head in shame now for posting a pic of a Remington on this forum.Hi Bob and welcome to the forum - Great photo of your warthog. What country were you hunting in? That sounds like a fantasy safari - Africa with HVA rifles. Any other game fall to the mighty Husqvarna?
