    1 in 10 is standard twist rate for a 308. I regularly shoot my SSG69 out beyond 800yds and that has a 1-in-10 barrel.

    One in ten? Not necessarily so: Winchester, Savage, SAKO, and Husqvarna chambered their 308's in 1:12" barrels... at least at one time they did.~Muir

    Sako had or has 1in11, 1in 10 is not so unusual a 308. You will not notice a difference.
    I chose 1in10 when rebarreling, at least for a piggy one can go to 200gr.
    Another reason was if I'd want to shoot subsonics.
    My hunting rifle shoots just over an inch at 300m with 155gr running at only 2500fps.
    1in10 is just a bit more flexible.

    Hi guys, Thanks for the in put, i am going to have my 308 rebarreled and 1 in 10 is an economical opption, its just that i did not know whether there was any hidden hickups using a 1 in 10, i generaly use and like 150 gr or there abouts this weight always seems to do less damage and kills cleanly.
    I am going to go with this opption. and will let you know the results.

    Many thanks for the info.

    Dry Powder.
