Sounds like your WSSM is not an AR, you know it will fit right?
That's exactly what it was built for. (Speed).
I took a different approach and put a 1 in 15 twist 3 groove barrel on it and so far it was a good
I wanted to get as much speed as possible with good accuracy. I have not reached max loads
yet and expect it to exceed 4500 ft/sec with the 40 grain ballistic tip (Have not tried the 35 grain
It has pushed the 69 grain to 3942 ft/sec with no signs of pressure or loss of stability with
the slow twist, But I would be surprised if it would handel bullets any larger.
It has been a fun project and has exceeded any expectations I had.
The 223 AI was built for coyotes and with 200 ft/sec more velocity with the lighter bullets it
will work in the AR platform and Fire forming is straight forward with accuracy well under
1 MOA with 223 ammo.
I am not a big fan of wild cats but this one just made sense.
