Default .223 Handi twist rate

For anyone who had considered the NEF Handirifle in .223 and abandoned the idea due to the 1-12" twist rate, some news, it is reported the rate will be 1-9" in 2006.
I think this should handle 65gr or so bullets , making it much more flexable in loading.
May have to rethink my failure to have one of those barrels, in fact, I have a .22 mold on order now!
Dedicated casters have been known to buy a rifle to match a mold they found!
Not that I would do such a thing, I actually did not order the mold until after the news of the new twist rate was out.
