    I recently did my first build and I was pretty pumped on it until I looked closer and noticed that the barrel which was supposed to be a 1:8 was actually 1:7 twist. I was sent the wrong barrel I paid for a 1:8. I primary shoot 62g and 55g. Will the twist affect bullet flight that much or should I go about returning and getting the 1:8? Thanks for your help.

    Send it. I shoot 55g BS ammo through my 1:7’s and still get decent enough groupings.

    Youre good man, if you were pewwing 77gr it would matter

    Good to see this horse is still alive in 2021.
