I want to stay with .223 for sure, however everything I find has a twist rate of 1/9. Will that twist work with the heavier bullets in the bolt gun? I'm not wanting to re-barrel from a factory gun to get the twist I need, if thats the case, I'll stick with my AR's. Thanks for the help guys!
    I have a 223AI with a 1:8 that works quite well at 600Meters with the 77gr SMK

    My rem700 5R bolt gun has a 1/9 with 20 inch barrel. It shoots all common bullet weights 55-80 grain very well.

    Very very well. A lot of factors at play and kick ass barrel is one.
