    Usually 1 in 10....but it's easy to check your barrel twist with a cleaning rod & jag. You can find the intsructions on this site under 'how to check your barrel twist', also on you tube and on www.yeswehunt.eu site.

    I would doubt it is 1-10, more likely 1-8 or 8.5.

    You can measure it as above.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    You can check the twist in any barrel like so:
    Remove bolt from rifle.

    1. Place a mark at the muzzle (Felt pen/tippex dot).

    2. Place a tight fitting patch on cleaning rod & (Patch end) draw a straight line with felt pen along the length of the rod approx 15".

    3. Insert patch/rod carefully into muzzle & mark the line as in enters the barrel at the mark on the muzzle.

    4. Drive the rod into the barrel & as the rod/line turns & arrives back at the mark on your muzzle, place another mark on the line on the rod.

    5. Withdraw the rod & measure...you will have your twist rate.

    Haha!

    I'd imagine it's the same as the 6.5 Swede so 1:8
