Every factory 240 I have ever seen had a 1X10 twist barrel which is borderline for 100 grainers. I really think you will find stability issues with the long 105 Bergers unless you have a custom barrel with a faster twist.

Agreed. I would much prefer a 1:8 twist for the longer bullets.

Don't some of the 243 win factory guns come with a 1;10 twist and stabilize 100 grainers?

I would think 105's with the added speed wouldn't be to big an issue. Have you run it through bergers stability calculator?
