1-14 Twist is the way to go with the Fireball!!!!

I have a 22-250 with a 1:14 twist and it much prefers 40g V-Max or Sierra BKs. It doesn't like anything heavier than 50-55s; won't even shoot 52g Matchkings very well. I'd sure think a 12 twist would still handle the 40 grainers well but might give you a little more flexibility to handle 50s-55s. You probably aren't going to use anything much heavier out of a Fireball anyway.

If I ever re-barrel my Varminter I'll probably go to 1:9 or 1:10 to handle the 60s and 65s.

Should I go with a 1in12 or 1in 14 out of a 24 inch bull encore barrel? I'm partial to 40gr V-Max bullets.
