280 REM rate of twist

I am looking at purchasing a 280 REM barrel for my T/C Pro Hunter. Does anybody know what the rate of twist is on that particular barrel?

Most of the Sevens are 1/9 or close to that.
You know, the back of some loading manuals have a reference section that lists the standard factory twists for different cartridges.
