I have been shopping for a 16inch 9mm barrel
and have noticed the twist rates 1:10 1:12 1:15
Will a 1:12 twist stablize the 147grn ammo ?
Noveske has a nice barrel for sale i'm thinking about

Std twist found in handgun is typically 1x16.... common twist found on carbine/SMG is 1x10.

Handgun seem to shoot 147gr just fine, so see no reason to think 1x12 would not suffice, but it seems kinda oddbal to me... I'm more of a 1x10 person myself.

If you plan to shoot 147 to 158gr subsonic 9mm you will want the 1:10.

1-10 for 147+ and 124gr the 1-16 is for 115 gr and under
