Importance of barrel twist?
I am new to reloading and am looking at a number of load data charts. Many cite test information that is different than my firearms. For example, both 30-30 and 308 Winchester with twists of 1:12 and my rifles are 1:10. How important is this feature when reloading? If it is important how to compensate?

Your 1:10 twist will stabilize the heavier bullets better than the 1:12 twist.

Thank you JTJ for the quick response!
Have my new press set up...reading 2 different manuals...thought I was getting ready to reload and hit that huge pile of powder/bullet data!
