what does it mean? While looking at the barnes tipped tsx at the store i noticed it said something about the barrel twist. I dont remember the numbers or what faster or slower means but when I looked the bullets up on barnes website it doesnt mention anything about barrel twist. So now what does faster or slower barrel twist mean(with examples...7" faster than 9" or vise versa). How to pick a bullet based on barrel twist? I shoot a remmington model 7 7mm-08 with a 20" barrel with a 9 1/4" twist. So with that I am looking at reloading my own rounds and not sure how o pick what bullet to go with. I want an all around load that will be good for deer and elk(I alo hunt pig but not really worried about using a dfferent round for it). I have always used 140gr federal nozler partition factory rounds but have everything but bullets and possibly powder. I have plenty of brass and some LR CCI primers and IMR 4350, 4895 and 3031. that I can look to use. I have read alot of people using the hodgdon varget powder with good results. So main question is what do bullets and barrel twist mean when trying to match them for a hunting round?
