I was just wondering what is the lightest bullet that you can shoot accurately with 1:7 twist. I know this twist is meant for the heavier bullets ie: 80's and 90's. I am asking this because I am wanting to purchase a Savage Model 12 Long Range Precision Varminter but I don't know if I should get it in a 1:9 twist or a 1:7 twist. I have read here that the 1:9 twist will stabilize bullets as heavy as 75grs but was actually wanting something a little heavier but still wanna shoot the lighter 69's or so. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks again.

I have shot the 52 SMK with good accuracy. I would think if you load to around 3200 fps you could shoot the 45 gr bullets with good accuracy.

Good deal. So your rifle has a 1:7 twist I take it? What do you normally shoot in it? Thanks again.

I cannot shoot anything lighter than a 62gr in my 1:7 twist. I tried 55's and I got a pattern, not a group.

Steve here... I have a 1-7/7 Krieger and it shoots 52 Bergers the best. All the others 40's 69's and 80's ok

I have shot 52's in 1 in 7, 1 in 7.7, and 1 in 8 twist with good results at 200 yards.

I normally shoot 69 grain out to 300 yards and 80 grain bullet out to 600 yards.
