Xbolt Hunter 7:1 twist

I just bought the xbolt hunter 6.5 CM and it has a 7:1 twist 22" barrel. I believe maybe to shoot the newer 156gr bergers.

 Has there been an issue with this fast of a twist? I could see issues with lighter bullets. Browning just released it's new Hunter long range, still with a 22" barrel, albeit heavy, they are back to a 8:1 twist.

Did you actually try doing this, Musicianized? Make sure to take every precaution if you do.

Yeah.  I'm a little confused, too, Saul.  Try what?
