Haven't shot anything but 55gr. through my SBR. Not bad, but would like to know if I'd be improving accuracy if I went up in bullet weight. Barrel is 9", six grooves 1/10 twist. Anybody shooting through this barrel?

1/10 twist is pretty slow. Generally speaking, you will not be able to increase bullet size very much and retain stability. You could maybe get to 60 or 65.

It usually takes 1:7 - 1:9 to stabilize the 75+grain bullets.

Thanks for the info. Gun shoots way better than I expected, just wanted to know heaviest bullet I could shoot. I can stay with the 55gr V-max.
