    Thats weird as, i double checked on a retailers site too and it also said 1:10 for the 6.5CM. (They must have just copy/paste the spec sheet on the kimber site that i saw.

    Obviously a mistake, 1:10 would have been a total cockup.

    Edit: ive just worked out what i did, the drop down box that selects cartridge was defaulted to 243 win. My mistake, as you were.

    In fairness for some reason I checked a bunch and they show the boot camp version of the 308 as having a 9 twist which would be nice to be honest
