What ammo types for what rate of twist



Log in to see fewer ads
I found a guy near me who sells GM Barrels, and have soe questions on barel twist.

What twists do GM come in in a bull non fluted 16" or 18" barrel?

I don't plan on shooting stingers through it, but all I have access to around here is Winchester (T22, Wildcat, etc) Federal (American Eagle, Game Shok, etc), and CCI ammo (minimags) in standard and high (not hyper) velocity so thats what I usually shoot.

What barrel twist should I go with for these cheaper ammos?

Thanks!!

Arrow 1:16" Twist

CanuckShooter,

For regular .22 LR ammunition, as you have noted, you want a 1:16" rate of twist...! !

The other twist rates are for 'speciality' applications:

1:20 Twist for .22 Shorts
1:18" twist for "Stingers"
1:16" twist for regular .22 LR's
1:9" twist for Aguila SSS 60 Gr.

`
