I like a 1/9 or even faster to shoot the 160s if I want-however I hardly ever do. I think my Ruger is a 1/9. A 1/10 will probably stabilize the 140s fine. The .260 is a great round. Plateau Hunter

If you are planning a rifle build, and using a button rifled barrel, I`d go an 8" twist.

If you use a cut rifle, then a 9 might work fine, but a 8.5" would be my first pick.

I shoot a 6.5/284 with 8.5" twist and the 142 Sierras are right at home.

It is cut rifled.

The button rifled barrels cannot hold twist as accuratly as cut barrels and run up to a 1/2" slower twist than ordered.
