I am wanting to try some of the 52 grain Berger Varmint bullets in my 223 which has a 1 in 9 twist rate. Berger advertises that the bullets are made for a 1 in 14 twist. My question is......have any of you used these bullets in a 1 in 9 223, and if so, how did you like them?

great in my 2 of my 8 twists and 12 twist. 25.6 Benchmark and those little 52 berger buggers are the ticket.

Thanks guys. I figured they should work, but also know that some bullets and twist rates don't jive. I like Berger bullets, and have used them in the 243 a lot, but not in a 223.
