I am ready to order a carbine barrel for a T/C Contender that is along the lines of the Ed Harris lettuce protector concept. I have decided to go with the 38 Spl. chambering since I already have dies, brass, bullets, powder, etc. The choices have been narrowed to either an EABCO barrel that has a 14" twist, or an MGM barrel with a 16" twist. Length will be around 22". The cost difference is so close as to be a wash. I am thinking that the 16" twist will be plenty enough spin for any bullet I will likely be using (up to 180 gr.). Does anyone think that a 14" twist is too much for cast bullets? I have read many good things about MGM barrels, and have an EABCO 22 Hornet barrel that is plenty accurate.
Any thoughts before I take the plunge?
