Hi everyone, I own a bushmaster m4, postban, 1:9 twist. I am thinking about buying some ammo from ammoman.com and he has a sale on 63gr fmj. I normally shoot 55gr. Will my weapon be ok with the 63 gr? thanks

Yes but you may want to double-check the zero on the rifle with the new stuff.

He also has a sale on 55gr FMJ (XM193) until Sept 2.

Kevin,

40gr, Really? That low?

How about burning out the barrel throat faster?

The sweet-spot for accuracy with a 1:9 twist barrel is 62 grn.

63 grn be....fine !!!
