Re: .223 suggestions

I prefer the 223 AI. Nothing like a 55 gr VMax, BT, or BK at 3600 fps to reach out and smack something.

Of note, I smithed a couple of factory Savage 1:9 twist barrels and they shoot everything from 50's to 75 gr VMax with excellent accuracy, even to 1K yards.

I have a friend who has a rem with 1:7 it works great. It is a fast enough twist to shoot the heavy pills and because of the lower velocity with the .223 it still shoots the 55's great and it makes for a very nice explosion of the vermon and that helps make it easier to be a spectator while your barrel cools down.
