Hi Guys:

I am wondering what the proper twist rate is for a .22 WMR barrel. I've always assumed it'd be 1:16 like .22 LR usually is, but it occurred to me it might be different since .22 Mag bullets are faster. I'm thinking about a custom .22 WMR project and might need to specify a barrel twist rate if I get a custom heavy target barrel made.

Green Mountain apparently uses 1:14 for .22 Magnum. 

They use 1:16 for .22 LR like everyone else. 

I want to make a heavy barreled .22 Magnum using a Boyds thumbhole varmint gunstock and my Savage 93FV's bolt action. I just think it'd look cool and probably will shoot very well too. I suppose I'd use a 24" long barrel just for the fun of it. 

It'd be my M-40's little brother. 😉
