Xbolt Hunter 7:1 twist January 05, 2020, 10:24:23 AM 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.
