    Has anyone gotten blow ups in this twist barrel with these bullets?? Looking to maybe switch from 60 vmax's and was wondering if my savage will blow'em up or not at the 3300-3400 fps I'd be getting?

    Blow up in mid-flight?
    Or blow up when they hit something?

    No they won't blow up in mid-flight.

    The only bullets you would possibly have problems with in a .223 would be the very thin-jacketed SX & Blitz type varmint bullets.

    Ive shot both, no probs. I changed barrels on my savage to a 1in14 to shoot the sub-55 grainers.
