Default Best 556 round for HK MR556A1

Hey,

I'm thinking of getting an HK MR556A1 rifle. I'm getting it because I've done some shopping around, and although it is a little too expensive, it is a really good gun. I know ammo varies from weapon to weapon, but for this rifle I as wondering if anyone knows the best match ammo. Any feedback on the rifle is accepted too, ONLY if it does not focus on the price.

Thank you in advance,
Czar

my opinion piston guns are a step backwards in technology not needed on the ar15 just complicates an already extremely reliable design. im not a fan of the hk sights and the narrowing at the muzzle features sounds funky at best. the biggest issue is the gun seems limited to using hard to get hk mags limited to 20 rounds. no clue there if you can use regular ar mags or not.

the listed twist rate is 1:7 your looking at 62+ grain bullets.

It takes magpul emags, NOT pmags, and the hk mags. It comes with a very sturdy 30 round steel mag. 62+, thanks
