    6.8 spc 1 in 10 or 1 in 11?

    I've been thinking about a 6.8spc AR. I've noticed some rifles are 1in10 twist and some are 1in11. Any of you super smarties out there have an opinion on what is better?

    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    Not a super-smartie, but...

    In practical terms, there's probably not a whole lot of difference. Heavier(= longer) bullets require a faster twist rate to stabilize them better. So if you think you're going to be shooting just the lightweight varmint bullets, bias your decision to the 1/11 twist. If you will be shooting mainly the heavier bullets (110-130 gr), then lean toward the 1/10.

    1:11 twist reduces pressure when paired with the SPCII chamber. Check over on 68forums, everyone there prefers 1:11.
