Ballistic Information

Ballistic Coefficient (BC) represents the bullet's ability to overcome air resistance in flight. Twist Rates: Minimum twist means the minimum barrel twist required for the bullet to be stable in flight. A 1:8 twist barrel is faster than a 1:9 twist barrel and will work fine for a minimum bullet twist of 1:9. For a minimum bullet twist of 1:9, a 1:10 twist barrel is too slow and will not work.
