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 .

My 700 BDL has a 1:12
My Nat Match M1a has a 1:11. The accuracy is incredible.
If I ever had to rebarrel the 700, it'd be in in a 1:11.
The 11" twist will allow you to go to 200 grain bullets with ease, just as water man stated.
