I just bought a Model1sales 16" Carbine in 5.56 1:9 chrome-moly barrel. Which bullets (grain) do you recommend I should use? Is there anything in particular that I can't shoot through this barrel?

You're good up to 69 grains.

What happens after 69 grains?

Does this barrel have to be broken in? Because it's not chrome linned?

yes it does have to be broke in if you care about doing such things....

i have a 16" 1x9 chromelined barrel and i was throwing 75gr's at 200m without any sign of keyholing.... i'm going to try it at 300m and then i want to get my hands on some 77gr..
