What is the best bullet weight/length for the SCAR 17 1-12 twist. What was it "designed" to use optimally?
I have been doing a lot of research on my 5.56 platforms (2 AR's 1-10 twist and my SCAR 16 1-7 twist) and feel that I have a handle on which bullet length/weight is designed to shoot best for a given twist rate.
Based on my research (the web, this site) for the 5.56, wouldn't the 1-12 twist rate for the SCAR 17 favor the lighter weight bullets? I have 2 AR 7.62's with 1-10 twist rates and am wondering if they would favor the heavier bullets over my SCAR?
There seems to be a lot of happy shooters here using the heavier bullets through the 17. I do realize there are many factors (bullet manufacturer, type of brass, load type, individual rifle, etc).
All things being equal, what bullet type "should" work best?
Thanks in advance!
