Will these work in a 1:9 ttwist? Just pick up a box from wal-mart and was thinking of running them in my AR.

They'll be fine. Many here have found them to be one of the most accurate factory loads to be commonly found. My experience with them also bears this out. They have been extremely accurate with the 1/9 barrels I have shot them through.

I am also curious as to their terminal performance.

I'm hoping they work out cause i plan to bust some foxes and maybe some coyotes with them.

They will work great in a 1/9, and are very accurate as well.

Hm...

how well do these rounds work with 3 rounds COM on larger, two legged creatures? Too light to do much?

I used them once for a reduced course high power match. and they held there own. I did some bench work and they shot better than me.

You would need more than Zantac to fix it.

I was planning on using these just for predator hunting. The lightest bullets i've used are 50gr. ballistic tips in my other.223s til now. I've only shot 55gr. wolf ammo through my ARs so wanted some info on these. Thanks for the input.

For a fox the 45's will probally work ok. For coyotes find a 55gr soft point. There are a bunch of use that have used 55 gr soft points for years on hundreds of coyotes. It puts them down with little fur damage. Most of the time when we get a fox with the soft points exit holes are not a problem either. I don't know what that 45 hp will do, but it is light on coyotes. Everyone has seemed to have forgoten about a good soft point bullet. I have a 3 year old H-bar colt and the other 3 guys use pre-ban colts, don't have a issue with feeding problems either.

I love 55gr rem psp. They are my number #1 deer bullet. I handload these for four differant guns they are accurate and put these small TX deer down fast.
