The 24" barrel is OK for shooting stationary positions. But front heavy for carrying around if you do much moving. The 20 Bull Barrel Varmint is about all you want to handle if moving and then it can be a chore as the day goes on. And shots up to 600 yards.
Foe example the 1:12 Twist will not handle much over 55 grain bullets without loosing stability and giving some key holes. The 1:8 will handle up to 80 grain if you single load them in the chamber. So 60s and 70s bullets are fine.

lol, Trust me I understand the twist/grain ratios... but those extra 4" of barrel will help with heavier bullets, I've seen it before and it was just shown to me again.

As his shoots .25moa with 69gr in 1-9 twist 24" barrel... and I shoot about .25moa with 60gr in 1-9 twist 20" barrel and I'm still thinking of going lighter for a better group.. anyways I'll refresh your memory AR Groups Link
1/4MOA AR-15? Is it possible?

I hope so because I just ordered an 18" 1 in 7" twist varmint Upper with the barrel fluted to save some weight from WOA. I'm putting it on my Colt LE6920 M4 that has a Geissele SSA-E trigger that I put in it. I will also put my Bushnell AR/223 scope with a 4.5-18x40mm zoom. I do reload so hopefully it will shoot under 1/2" at 100 yds.

One vote here for Wilson combat, have one in 223 and 6.8...
the 223 is 14.5 inch light barrel and shoots .5 with the right ammo.
They are very light, and very well made.

Re: Most Accurate AR -15

Don't totally discount the lower priced brands. I have been load tuning my dpms tpr with 20" ss 1-9" twist and have gotten .75" 5 shot groups with 63gr sierra's and 25gr varget. Those are the pointed soft point bullets made for hunting. I have also had good groups with the 69smk's, but they are impossible to acquire here in ak. Maybe i just got a good one, but i am very happy with the dpms
