    1x9 Twist

    ive read a lot about the differant twists when it comes to .223 barrels. i read that most 62gr ammo doesnt go well with a 1x9 twist barrel. i recently ordered a lot (500rds) of 62gr hollow points and i was wondering if that would be bad. i have a 16'' barrel if that matters

    Only one way to tell for sure. Shoot em up!
    I've shot 40-75 grain through 1x9 and 1x7 barrels. Each rifle is its own animal and may suprise you with what it shoots best.

    One more thing to read, but according to the ammo oracle, your 1/9 twist should be ok for 62 gr

    I cannot speak for every bullet, but 69 gr Sierra Match Kings will definately shoot in a 9 twist barrel. Keep the speed up and they will clean the 300 yard prone rapid target on a national match course. If your wind reading skill are above average, you can score really well at the 500 yard line at Camp Atterberry also.
