    You mean grains? 68 grams=1 049 grains

    It depends on the calibre and what you want to achieve. What do you have in mind?

    Yes, competition shooters use 68, 77 and 80 grain projectiles. There is also a military load with the 77 grain SMK which is as long as it gets for feeding from a magazine. The 80 grain SMK is for single loading in slow fire prone at 600 yards and is too long to feed from the magazine.

    1:7 is a faster twist than needed for most any .224 bullets used in an AR. It was adopted in order to stabilize the very long tracer bullet.
