    Just picked up a factory 308 bbl Does anyone know what these bbl like? 168 175 etc. is this a 1:12 twist?
    thanks
    I have the same barrel for my AX. The Lothar Walther barrels are seriously heavy duty and can take thousands upon thousands of rounds.
    yes it’s a 1:12.
    I feed my 20” barrel FGMM 185 Berger Juggernauts and they never disappoint.

    I’d give Fgmm 175gn SMK’s a go if you can find any. Good luck

    I have a .35 Whelen Improved. I don't shoot factory ammo out of it any longer, but the first couple of boxes of ammo through the rifle where factory 200 and 250gr loadings from Remington. While the accuracy of the factory ammo was great, it does not match the accuracy of the loads I've developed so far. The difference in accuracy was about 40% will the factory ammo going under an inch.

    I have exact same barrel (20”) on my AIAT. I reload. Excellent results with 178 ELDX
