How heavy of a bullet would a 20" 223 Wylde, 1:10 Twist 6 Groove, Rifle Length gas, AR 15 HBAR .980, .750GB, .750 contour be able to handle consistently?

There's theory, but I've seen similar barrels shoot 50 and 75 grains equally, think it is barrel specific for me

BassCat,Are you sure it has a 1-10 twist? Most twist rates for 5.56/223 bullets today would be 1-7 - 1-8 - 1-9 or 1-12 twist.

A 1-10 twist is pretty standard for 30 caliber bullets.

It's a custom barrel and that is copied/pasted right from mfg site.
