.260 Remington 1:8.5" 142 Matchking?


Will a Krieger 1:8.5" twist 27" barrel stabilize a 142 Gr Matchking in .260 Remington?

Doing the basic math in my head, I think it will.

Stick with the standard 1-8. A 142 Sierra is a mighty long bullet.

Yes, my 1/8 twist 26in tube stabilizes them just fine. .5 will not make a difference.
