.223/5.56 has nothing to do with barrel twist. its bullet weight that relates to twist. its merely a guide not truth for every rifle, but faster twists are for heavier bullets. slower twist for lighter bullets. so in theory, your barrel will shoot 69gr, or 75gr better than 50, or 55gr... by a box of each bullet wieght and see what shoots best.
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
