308 rate of twist

I am thinking again of buying another 308 .
I see TC has a 10-1 ROT remingtons with 12-1 and tikka with 11-1.

I would probably be shooting 165- 180 gr Bullets --- so what then would be the best ROT for that bullet weight .
Most of the shooting would be probably be paper punching @ our 100 range but might also be used for yotes

I am thinking the tikka , but the 10/1 too has been around since I was just fed with a bottle .

Rugers and Savages also have 1 in 10 twists. I personally haven't seen any practical difference between and 1 in 10 and 1 in 12 for a .308. Unless you are going to go with some real long bullets like Bergers or 220 grain bullets, I would go with the gun you like and not fret over whether it is 1 in 10 or 1 in 12. And those long bullets are generally not suitable to the .308's short neck anyway.
