I bought a box (50rds) of .223 loaded ammo, Berger VLD 90gr bullets.
I think they're too long for the twist on my barrel.
Anybody want to buy them?
$30 plus shipping.

Don't know....Haven't shot any.
I don't even know if they fit in an AR mag.
They are the shit for someone that wants to reaaaalllllly reach out and touch.
May need to single-load in an AR.

I shoot 77gr amazingly well.

Maybe some one with a 1/7 barrel would like to try it?

This is saying too long to fit in the mag as well as too long to stabilize in a 1:8. 1:7 would work apparently.
