I have been lobbying for 1:8 twist for 3 years! I spent over $800 more than needed on a T3 Sporter just bucause it had a 1:8 twist.
Do not encourage Berreta to import slow twist .223's please!
If you want to shoot 45 gr pills be my guest, but please don't imagine that slow twist is good for anyone I know!
I don't shot 45 grain pills. I shoot 50 and 55 grain bullets which are idea for varmint hunting. The 12″ twist is ideal for these weight bullets. If I wanted a target rifle it wouldn't be a light weight sporter which is most suited for hunting. No, problem, I brought a Browning X Bolt, 223, Stalker with a 12″ twist. I'm happy. Shoots like a dream with reloads.
