I'm curious as to the heaviest 5.56 hunting bullet commercially available, either for reloading or loaded ammo. I have a 1/7 twist barrel, so it should handle heavier bullets just fine.

I know that 5.56 isn't a great deer round, but at the ranges I hunt <100 yrds, it would work OK.

Scirocco 75 grain bonded. The above listed Barnes and the Scirocco will require fast twist barrels, at least 1 in 8". Not sure about the Speer, it may work with 1 in 9". The Win 64 PP will also work fine with 1 in 9".
