Looking forward to your review on this.

Did you read any reviews before you bought it?

Hey guys,

I am relatively new to the AR platform. I picked up a Bushmaster for a stupidly cheap price. (Don't worry I had a Master Gunsmith check it out before shooting, it is in fantastic shape).

Now to my question, the barrel has a 1/9 twist rate. What grain would be the best for this twist rate?

It will be use primarily for target shooting.

Any info on quality ammo brands for .223/5.56 would be great too.

55gr .223

your barrel should be stamped with .223 on it. Shoot that and only that through it.
Check your gas key for proper staking.

now go have fun.

It actually has 5.56 stamped on it, does it make too much of a difference?

if its 5.56, no. if its .223, YES.
5.56 chambers can shoot 5.56 and .223
.223 chambers (except wylde) can only shoot .223

Thats what I had thought. It has the 5.56 NATO stamp on it. From what information I have read I figured it would eat both .223 and 5.56.

Any brand preferences?

I use Federal for target and Hornady for PD in my pistols. I have found both brands to be great.

If you want accrate groups that bear is a stretch. I shot some the other day and it was all over the target. Then switched to some hand loads and got .90 inch group.

Very true but oranges are better than apples.....
I'm just saying, at least for my gun, is that the only thing bear is good for is pulling the trigger really fast. I think I got a 6 inch group with them at a 100 yards bench shooting.
