Anybody tried them in a 1-9 twist barrel? I know Bigdaddy tried the 115's, and they tumbled, but I've not heard anyone trying the 105's. Berger recommends a 1-8 twist, but I was hoping I would get lucky. I've seen someone talk about using a 105 A-Max with a 1-9", I was hoping the berger would work as well.
 
According to the bullet length page on JBM Ballistics the lengths are:
 
105 Berger VLD= 1.235
105 Hornady A-Max= 1.237
 
Unless there is a difference in ogive design that would make the Bergers less stable, I would think that if one would stabilize, then the other should. What do you guys think?

I'm curious also  however I have not found any heavy bullets for 6mm hehttp://www.6mmbr.com/243Win.htmlre.   also of interest is the 115 DTAC
Im shooting a Savage 16FCSS   1 in 9.25    http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/models/
I have had really good luck with factory Winchester Power Max 100 gr bonded HPT.  I just started working with it but it throws 85 gr Barnes TSX high and left,  high I can understand as they are faster.  I have looked for the two bullets you mentioned but no luck locally.  Thought you might be interested in the 115 DTAC also though.   Have you worked with any of the light ultra fast bullets?

Anything above 100Gr went to crap in mine. I settled on the 95 bergers and a 100grsp.

I've only worked with 85gr. Hornady innerbonds Wes. They shot like poo. That was a 1-10" twist barrel. It loves factory 100 gr. Winchester powerpoints. The rifle I'm wondering about these for, I don't yet own, but I may VERY soon. Will keep you updated.

Wes, I found the length of the 115 DTAC bullet. At 1.290" I'm thinking they are also going to be too long. I may try the 105 VLD, and 105 A-max just to see if I get lucky. Otherwise, I may be going with the 95 gr. VLD also.
