So understand that while shorter barrels can be just as accurate as longer barrels, they can also be uncomfortable to shoot.

As far as accurate twist, the M40 A3 rifle USMC snipers shoot has a 1:11.5" twist for the 175 gr bullets they use, and I have heard they do pretty well with it.
I was wondering about the 175. Berger says theirs is not stable at 1 in 12.
