that may be theoretical but int he real world it makes no difference

I challenge anyone toy produce targets that show noticably lower accuracy w/ 55gr in a 1in7 vs 1in9.

I've seen same gun 55 gr vs 62 gr in 1in7 and no difference time and again.

Just like 1in9 will be fine with 62 gr as well ( and even up 70 gr)

What was the range these test were done. Obviously with such a high velocity you won't see much at 50 yards

I shoot my Rock River using iron sights up to 125 yards or so. I see no difference between the walmart cheap 223 and the higher end stuff. That is with a 1/9 barrell.
