Default gain twist barrel?

I was reading through the Sierra manual and on the 6.5X52 Carcano it mentioned that these rifles had a gain twist barrel. It starts off at 1X19.25 and finishes at 1X8.25. What would be the point and has anyone else ever done this?
Ask not what your government can do for you. Ask how your government can go away and get out of your life.

The unarmed man is is not only defenseless, he is also contemptible.
