55 Grain Or 62 Grain?

Recommended Posts

You can shoot either. The 1/7, 1/8 twist is intended for the 62 grain bullets, but either will work. I mostly shoot cheap wolf 55 gr in any of my twists. Enjoy your rifle.

For a 16" barrel 1 in 9 twist?

The heavier bullet, ie. 62 grains is best shot in the faster twise (1 in 7) barrel. It will shoot in the slower twise (1 in 9) barrel, but I'm told they aren't as accurate.

My rifle Colt Sporter has a 1 in 7 twist and I shoot the Wolf stuff just fine.
