    Whew! How long is the barrel on the L57 Swift? And what load and velocity?

    Beautifully done custom stock, too.

    I had Dennis Olson build 4 rifles for me in 222, 223, 220 Swift and 6mm Remington. This 220 Swift has a Lilja 27 inch heavy fluted barrel with a twist made to shoot 50 grain bullets. Fast twist is wasted on people that are trying to make howitzers out of rifles. The swift was made to shoot varmints and it does that very well.

    I am loading 50 grain V-Max bullets with 42 grains of H414 powder, I am guessing at 3700 FPS as I haven't chrono'd them...
