Stag offered in a 1:10 Twist?
Odd, I thought all of their Model 1's were in 1:9. hmmmm.
Even at 1:10, I don't think you should have any issues with 55gr. I don't know that I would buy a case of 69 to 75gr, without trying them first. but 55gr should be okay. That's not a lot of difference in twist between the 1:10 to 1:9, and the 1:9 will handle up most 69gr and some up to 73gr with no probs.
You can always give Stag a call to be safe, but I don't think it will be an issue, UNLESS those rounds are loaded HOT or something like that.
