    Will it run okay through a barrel with a 1:9 twist? I can't get a handle on the grain weight/twist rate relationship.

    One way to find out...

    FWIW, my 1/9 did fine w/ 75gr
     
  3. Generally 1:9 will work with weights (really lengths) up to 70 grains. This isn't a hard-and-fast rule though, and as THT says, he had no problems with 75 gr stuff.
     
  4. From http://www.6mmbr.com/223Rem.html Reading the whole article in the link gives a great amount of info on the cartridge.

    Holy crap! It didn't say that when I saw it, just before starting this thread.
