Did I start all that? Sorry Scott.
Op, buddy, you can shoot any weight you like. As long your caliber marking on your barrel matches the cal/mm of your ammo, your good.
Now if your asking about accuracy, that's subjective. I've had lots of folks tell me that higher twist rates like heavier bullets but my varment upper likes 55 gr all day long for sub MOA groups.
Whenever I'm trying a new gun or barrel, I put the entire range of available bullet weight through it to see which weight groups the best. Once I've found the gr that particular barrel likes I can begin tweaking the load for optimum performance. By tweaking I mean trying the same weight from several different manufactures and in different bullet types because I dont reload...yet.
