Thanks in advance for the replies folks. I have looked several places including the "Ammo Oracle" and the 5 pages here and have not really found any leads.
I'm simply looking for the best weight bullet to be fired from this barrel. If it matters any....I will be using a suppressor also. In addition, what manufacturers would you suggest as well. Thanks again...

I have that configuration. The Varminter. Actually the cheap stuff is more accurate for me. The 45 grain Winchesters and the 64 grain Powerpoints give the best accuracy for me. Followed closely by the PMC Blitzkings. Really great setup IMHO!

Hey Beerswimmer, you are toally correct, it is a "Varminteer" I completely forgot about that. So what your sayin' is the smaller grain loads work best? 62, 69, 77's they wouldn't stabalize?

For what its worth.....I ordered this F%cking barrel from Bushmaster on July 22nd and have still not recieved it. I read where "fluted barrels" take longer to process and finish, but DAMN. I love using Bushmaster products etc... but I have really been disappointed with this encounter. For those deciding on what Sheryl/Cheryl of Bushmaster calls "an unusual barrel" you'd better order it at LEAST two months out or the proceeding season! And be prepared for her explination "we offer 231 barrel configurations so what do you want me to tell you Mr. Thompson".......

Troy....Best as far as most accurate round! What bullet weight/manufacturer would you recommend? I plan to shoot 100-however it will take me. Thanks for the replies.

Hey Troy.....so for different ranges, I'd use different weighted rounds? I thought twist rates and barrel rates were relative to all ranges for the same weight, i.e. if it works at 100-200 then it would work at 400-600 yards? Is this not true?

Thanks Troy for the insight, I really had no idea about the different ranges of bullets.....
