The Barnes site lists 1:8 as required for the bullet. That said, rifles can be a law unto themselves, so I'd test before giving up if it were me.

What are you trying to do? Many of the cool kids are using the 143 grain Hornady ELD-X with considerable satisfaction. Of course, these days it makes sense to use what you've got, so much depends on the components you've got available. I've been playing with the Nosler 140 grain RDF and the 120 grain Hornady GMX in my .260 Remington, but accuracy so far has been mediocre, without being bad. It could be the bullet, the combination, the rifle, or just lousy shooting at my end. Have you hunted much with your rifle?

Lead free may be required to hunt in England? I would probably drop down to the 120 Barnes and run em hard.
