Q: I am in the process of purchasing my first AR-15 DPMS ORACLE ... could you recommend a good affordable round for target practice

Posted On: 10/21/11 By: Anonymous

A: If your rifle has a 1/9 twist, this would be a good choice for target practice. Any of the ammunition with 68gr or 75gr BTHP projectiles should provide accurate groups out of your rifle. The same goes for Hornady's 52gr BTHP and 55gr TAP FPD. If you are willing to sacrifice a little accuracy for a big reduction in price, the bulk 223 ammo will be good practice fodder.
Q: What barrel rifling is required to shoot the > 55gr bullets?

Posted On: 10/21/11 By: Anonymous

A: Practically any standard .223/5.56 twist rate, from 1/6.5 to 1/14, will stabilize 55gr projectiles. 1/9 twist is needed for 62gr M855 and 69/73gr HPBT type ammo. 1/8 twist is recommended for anything that will fit in an AR-15 magazine (40-77gr) and then some, and 1/7 twist will stabilize tracers, anything that will fit in the magazine, and 80gr and 90gr HPBT ammo that has to be loaded one round at a time.
Q: Would it be practical to shoot a bullet of this weight from a AR-15 with a 1:12 twist barrel out to 300 yards? If not what twist rate would you recommend?

Posted On: 10/21/11 By: Salim

A: No, these Hornady 75gr HPBT bullets would not stabilize from a 1/12 twist barrel, even at close range. At a minimum, 1/9 twist would be necessary - 1/8 or 1/7 would be recommended, especially at 300 yards.
