From what I see this is correct, barrel twist rate being caliber variable I mean. I noticed that Colraine barrels increase from a .54 cal 1 in 56 to a 58 cal. 1 in 66. I'd prefer 1 in 66 for the .50 ca.l but that's just me.
Again the knowledge compiled in these forums . i also noticed that ryal barrels are all 1 in 72 twist........the ones advertised for sale anyways reguardless of caliber. guess i was mistaken when i assumed that my 1 in 48 twist .36 frontier rifle was an incorrect twist rate.
A gertleeman mentioned a 1 in 96? rate of twist for .62 caliber.
i also understand that longer barrels are not always better. A .40 cal in 38inch length might be
better than say 42 inch. i guess i need charts dang it. But then again what looks good on paper isnt always best for hunting.... confused again...hehe
cant afford all them various trial bullets.That's why I asked.
thanks again for the input. just wanted dear old dad to down a big buck without having to use "kentucky windage". Aiming high I mean. You know i could buy a really nice modern firearm for the price of a custom made job. just dont like the looks of them. guess thats what it all boils down to.I'm now obsessed....but i'd still like to make a double jaeger that shoots .45 sabots...... Geesh! Near miss....sharp objects ,and arching projectiles fall at my feet.hahaha
saw a coyote at 25 yards on a sharp ledge while looking for arrowheads in the creeekbed yesterday.... Woulda been an excellent shot
