Default New AR what shoots best?

I just picked up a Huldra Tactical Elite. Not sure if any of you have a Huldra, but they are basically an Adams Arms AR. It has a 16 inch 1 in 7 barrel and was wondering what bullet weights shoot best out of them?

62 to 77 grain. 80's are too long to fit in the mag but you can single load them and they also do well

Don't know about their complete guns, but I installed an Adams Arms kit a while back, and it ate every type of ammo I fed it, to include blanks, Lake City brass, and a couple of brands of Russian steel ammo without a hiccup.

Shoot any weight you like, the rifle will tell you what it likes best and worst. I have several 1/7 that prefer 53 and 55 gr bullets to anything heavier.

General guidance, actual results will vary: http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f20/understanding-barrel-twist-bullet-weights-44557/

Quote:
Twist to Bullet Weight: Suggested Range:

1:12 Twist 42-55 grain range
1:9 Twist 55-72 grain range
1:8 Twist 55-79 grain range
1:7 Twist 62-77 grain range

The above information is to be used for the basic understanding of Barrel Twist and Bullet Weight. There are always rifles that are the exception to the norm!

Overkill0084 is right. That's the chart you should refer to to get you started. I'd play around in the 62-75 grain range until you find the perfect load..

Especially if you're precision shooting..

If you're just plinking and having fun, I'd buy the cheapest 55 grain stuff your rifle will reliably cycle and start stocking up..

I have a bunch of cheap 55 grain stuff for playing around with red dots..
And I'll pull out the 62 grain match grade stuff when I get behind a powered scope and a bench rest.
