    Jerry,
    AWESOME SHOOTING
    I hope that you or someone else can answer my question?
    From reading the article you were using a fast twist barrel with big bullets,
    my question is, I have built a sweet AR 223 with a 24" Heavy triangle 9 twist
    barrel, from my reading you can't shoot the big bullets in a 1-9 twist barrel,
    this barrel is AWESOME and shoots great, I have plans on shooting long range with it not a mile! What bullet would I use to try and shoot 1000yards with my slow twist barrel?

    Filppo,
    Do you have a 223 with a 1-9 twist that you can shoot the 77gr bullet out to 500 yds ect? From what I have read the 1-9 twist won't stablize the big bullets? I have some 77gr sms that I was going to load for a Target AR with 1-7 twist that i built for a friend. I wished I had Quick Load that i could do some load developing.

    I have a 20" bull barrel upper thats 1:9 and it shoots Nosler 77gr bullets just fine out to 600yds. As accurate as any match barrel.

    Hi Guys,
    You all have changed my thinking a lot
    I have been working hard to get my 243WSSM to shoot like I want with very little luck, now I think I will work a little harder on my 223 and see how it likes the bigger bullets.
    Thanks a bunch.

    There are 9 twists and then there are 9 twists.

    The only real way to know is to shoot and see.

    I really like the 75gr AMax and Berger VLD. These will shoot to very long distances. In fact, the Amax was shot in a factory Savage out to a mile the same time I was shooting.

    You may have to single feed for best effect but the simplest answer is go launch some lead.

    Jerry
