Tapered preferred. Stainless preferred, but I'll consider anything

That twist is gonna be a custom only as TC used 1:12 for all 22's except LR was 1:15
You're getting close to a Valkyrie spin for those real heavy bullets.


Think twice...shoot once.

Yeah, I would take a Valkyrie barrel instead Smile
But I was hoping a 1-8 .223 would be easier to find.

I'd love to help you out, but that twist is one used by AR's.
Do you plan on shooting very heavy bullets?
I'm just curious.
