i bought 24 inch heavy bbl upper with a high rise flat top and a free float tube off of a guy i know at work. It is made by jt distributing. It has a 1in8 inch twist. Is this a good upper, and what grain bullet should i load for it??

I can't believe I actually get to be the first person who says "WHO?!?! YOU BOUGHT WHAT?!"

Seriously, J&T is a high quality reputable company with good products. I have zero regrets about anything I've bought from them... all great quality / service.

I've never had a J&T "match" or bull barrel, but the standard 20" A2 Hbar barrel (Shaw, I think) I had easily shoots MOA (traded it to my brother)... with the standard handguards even, not free floating. You'll find ARs in general (regardless of manufacturer) are very accurate guns. I also have a 16" J&T with open sights that I KNOW shoots better than I do.

The trick is to find ammo (or if you reload, a decent load) that your gun likes. Mines shot great with Federal American Eagle or Win Q3131A. It shot OK with Fed XM193 (Lake City) also. Mine had a 1/9 twist and it shot great with 55 or 62 gr bullets. With your 1/8 I bet you could go heavier and get decent results.

As a side note, I always like to keep my barrels clean of copper... they shoot a lot better clean.

That brings up a good point and the ONLY SINGLE THING I do not like about J&T... they really, really need to update their website. It sucks. I love to order things online and would order a lot more from them if they had a better website.

I purchased some parts from them in the past. Nice to deal with. Fast ship.

I have dealt with J&T a few times. Good people.

There was a time when they stocked lots of Colt parts and barrels.
