i bought a savage 110 in 243 a couple of months back, i canntnot find the correct twist rate i have been told 1-7 though 1-11, the most is a 1-9 with ssavage was the most popular, if it is a 1-9 twist what would be the best wieght ammo for this twist rate?

Measure the twist rate with a cleaning rod, a tight fitting patch and a ruler.

ihave a savage with 9.25 twist in .243 and it would not stabilize a 105 v-max. I went to 87gr vmax to tighten the group.

The Savage website says 1:9.25" twist.

ihave a savage with 9.25 twist in .243 and it would not stabilize a 105 v-max.
The 105 gr A-Max is a very long bullet, it would be marginal at best in a 1:9.25" twist.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?

"...would be marginal at best in a 1:9.25" twist..." My Cooey .243 is 1 in 9.5. Speer 105 grain bullets work just fine. Minute of deer despite the glass bedded Win 70A stock. Very consistent though.
Your 110(not made in .243 any more) has a 1 in 9.25 twist. Made for heavy bullets. 85 grains and up. Mind you, lots of 'em will shoot lighter bullets just fine.
"...a 1-9..." .223 twist.
Spelling and grammar count!
