    Build help.

    So scored a barrel of wildman(cheers) . 7mm 1in9 no 3 contour. Couple questions is the twist rate ok for the 162 amaxs and or 168 bergers . Secondly how do I tell the contour of original barrel for stock clearance i can open up the stock if I have to but would rather not.
    And does anyone have any experience with bell gunsmithing ie colin bell. Hes the closest to me but dean maisey isnt much further away. Any recomendations

    1:9 should be sufficient for that weight range
