    barrel twist on a Tikka M558

    Hi Guys

    does anyone have any ideas what the twist in a standard Tikka M558 barrel would be in .22/250 and how can i check its the standard barrel on the gun or is the twist stamped onto the barrel anywhere



    much appreciated

    Twist Rates - how to find what your twist rate is:

    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.
