    No experience with it, but this chart says a 1:12 will stabilize a 180 and a 1:11 will stabilize a 200.

    If that's accurate, I'd feel good about a 1:11.2 with a 185.

    depends on what you consider stabalized, at to what distance,

    but for the most part i dont think you will have any problems.
    What was that ?

    My Accuracy Int'l stabalizes the 185gr Scenars just fine. If memory serves me correctly it is a 1-12" twist.
