Thread: Off The Shelf High Twist Rate .223

    Off The Shelf High Twist Rate .223

    I'm looking at filling my .223 slot on my FAC.

    I've always been pretty sure of getting a Remmy 700 SPS Tactical due to the 1 in 9 20" barrel and I love my other Remmy 700.

    Are there any other off the shelf factory rifles that come with a high twist rate barrel that I could also look at?

    From a quick glance at their websites, it appears that Sako and Tikka both supply 1 in 8 twist rates.

    regards

    A mate at work has a Savage .223 it's extremely accurate, some tend to swerve Savage .... not sure why after seeing his shoot.

    Savages are very accurate rifles.~Muir

    Savage are accurate and you get longer barrels.
    Rem 1:9 20" shoots just fine, if you can live with the rest of the rifle.

    Sako and Tikka are good bets, most likely on special order for the 1:8.
    Mine is now a 75 1:8 22 3/4" and was previously the Rem 700.
