Well I have many uppers but no 24's, Now I want one but was wondering which barrel to chose? 1-8 or 1-9 I know it depends on which bullet I'm using but I just want to hear the pros and cons of the two

I have the 1/9 and it shoots the 45,55,62, just fine. I have never put anything else in it.

I had a choice between 1:8 and 1:12, i chose 1:8.

and get it fluted if you can.

1:8 would cover about all you need and it does fine on lighter bullets as well, if you hand load you will find it even sweeter.

I went with the RRA heavy stainless in 1 in 12" for the heck of it. I had everything else but the 1 in 12", shoots real good.

I got the RRA 1:12 twist for doggin' I only put 50-52 grn bullets downpipe and it groups sub 1/2" pretty darn easy. I know another guy at the blub who has 1:8 twist using 69grn rds and his rifle prints nice groups also.

Guess because it's lighter and cools easier because the flutes add more surface area to the barrel to dispensate heat. Not that you would be rapid firing a varmit gun. However, I gotten mine hot a few times.
