    I think that it is 1 in 16.

    PR should know he's a gunsmith.

    I also agree it's 1in16

    I know who PR is and plan on buying a kit from him...

    I wasn't trying to imply in my previous post that I had any clue, whatsoever, as to the twist rate. My post was one of surprise and not challenge.

    With that being said, have any of you found that accuracy degrades when shooting 147 gr bullets?

    There are reports, from Precision Bullets staff in fact, that pistols have a difficult time stabilizing the 147.

    My gun does not have that problem even with Precision Bullets products.
    Just load a few and shoot at 25yds and see if you have a round hole or an egg hole.
