wondering if anybody knows of a 22 cal centerfire bolt action (preferably heavy barrel) that is 223 or 22-250 that has a twist rate high enough for 75-80 grain bullets? Thanks

The fastest twist I've seen in a stock bolt gun in .223 has been 1:10, which still probably won't stabilize a 75-80gr bullet very well. I can't remember the make.. I'm thinking it was a Savage. Never seen a .22-250 in anything other than 1:14. Probably because a heavier bullet in that case would cause too much pressure and be unsafe, so it's more aimed at lighter, faster bullets. M@
