Both Chrome lined and one shoots 1-1.5" @ 100 with 55 gr the other 3"@ 100 with 55 gr both shoot 1" @ 100 with 62 gr .

One of mine is a RRA tactical operator 2 1:9 twist and the other is a LRC m6a2 1:7 twist will 62 grain shoot well in both?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Good call . LOL You really just need to shot a couple different weights and manufacturers ammo and see what shoots best outta ur gun . Just because it shoots good outta mine doesnt mean it will do as well in another rifle . I have a pretty good feeling that my 2 barrels came off 2 complete different lathes , Lots of different variables like sharper / duller bits etc .
