6mm Bullet Weights that Will Stabilize in a 13.5-twist Barrel
« on: January 11, 2023, 01:22:56 PM »
I have a new 6PPC rifle coming with a Krieger 13.5 twist barrel.  I gather that 6mm bullets in the 60-68-gr. range should stabilize, but I'm wondering how heavy I can go with this barrel.  Has anyone found 70-75-gr. bullets to stabilize in a 13.5-twist barrel?

 Up to 70 maybe even 75 in a 13.5 twist. Beyond that you go in to uncharted waters. Only way to know will be to try it.
