Guidelines for Stability Factor and Twist Rate:

Choose a bullet length best suited to your rifle twist and type of hunting.

Note that S/F increases as twist tightens.  A 1:10" twist is tighter than a 1:12" twist.

Bush and dangerous game hunting

S/F greater than 1.6 is required. There is no upper limit to the S/F here. If this bullet does not meet the requirement, use a shorter bullet.

General hunting to 500m/yds

S/F greater than 1.4 is required. There is no upper limit to the S/F here. If this bullet does not meet the requirement, use a shorter bullet.

Long range beyond 500m/yds

S/F greater than 1.2 is required but more than 1.5 is not desirable. If this bullet S/F is too high, use a longer bullet. If too low, use a shorter bullet.

On the chart to the right:

1. Select the twist rate of your rifle on the horizontal axis and read the S/F on the vertical axis.

2. Use the guidelines above to determine suitability for your application.
