wouldn't a 1:12 stabilize from 147gr to 175gr. i think its the right twist for a battle rifle. on a precision rifle i would go with a 1:10

Ya cause the ACR has a 1:9 twist in the .223 vs SCAR's 1:7 military bbl plus no 7.62 ACR in sight

ACR=fail IMHO

You may be right. Most of my experience is with precision rifles in 308. My thinking is 1:10 will also stabilize from 147gr up.

I was comparing the 17 to the ACR. I had big hopes for the 17. Now if it was 16 vs ACR then I'd say Scar 16 even though i can't change the barrel.

1:12 will work fine for surplus up to 175gr bullets. You're not going to use anything heavier for that anyhow so what's wrong with it.
