    I've used 55s, mostly Nosler / Combined Technology, in both 6BR (8-inch twist) and .243 Win (10-inch twist). They shot remarkably well in a 6mm BR Norma chamber that sees a huge jump even with bullet just nipped into the case-neck by less than a tenth of an inch. It takes a bit more load development to find a powder and charge that suits this set-up, but once found, the BR (a competition rifle, not a sporting weight job) would run with quarter inch 5-round 100yd groups despite a well-on-the-way-out barrel.

    What you don't get (unsurprisingly) are the MVs that a slow-twist short-throat job set up for light bullets will provide. I was down at least a couple of hundred feet per second on what I've seen quoted, maybe even 300 fps of more in the BR.

    I didn't have any blow-ups or similar with the Noslers in an 8-inch twist at 3,250-3,400 fps, or with 58gn Hornady V-Maxes in the 10-inch twist 243.
