Im getting ready to rebarrel my Tikka, and I was wondering if anyone has shot 60-75 gr bullets out of a 1-8 twist barrel? Thanks.

I shoot 70's out of my 1/9 a 1/8 could probably do it but might be finicky

Verminator2 has used the 58 grain V-max out of his eight-twist with good results. Overspinning doesn't seem to be an issue with light bullets as long as they aren't fast enough to cause them to come apart. I'm shooting 65's out of my ten-twist as well with no problems.

IME you should be fine. I'll take a faster twist any day. Odds of a fast twist shooting the lighter bullets are better than a slow shooting the heavys. If and when you want to leg it out you'll have plenty twist to run something like the 105 AMaxes.
