Twist rate of M&P 9mm?
I'm starting to digest information on reloading and wondered what the twist rate on the 9mm M&P (w/4" barrel) is.
I tried to use the trick where you see how much your cleaning rod rotates in the barrel. It appears to be about 1/8 of a turn over the 3.5" of rifled barrel length which would give a twist rate of 1:28. Does that seem right to any of you re-loaders out there?
I'm interested in matching up the bullet weight with the twist to get the best accuracy, but I can't find any info on the lengths of different manufacturers' bullets to be able to plug it into the formula.
Has anyone already done this work and/or have any recommendations for me?

It's the same problem for bullets. There's no length listed for bullets on their manufacturers web sites. It sure makes choosing supplies more difficult.
