I ordered a RRA Coyote Rifle from Adam at wise wild life solutions and it is shipping out in the morning. It has the 1:9 twist, 16" barrel, 223 cal. My question is what is the highest grain bullet i can shoot with this twist rate, and mantain accuracy? 55, 60 or 65. What yall shootin out of your rifles with this twist rate? I dont reload so what is some factory stuff? Thanks!

another buyer from Wise, mine will be here on wed. Buddy of mine is a reloading master I will get u everything u need to know within a day or so. Stock up on some brass if u can find it. Do a search online for Tubbs Final Finish too, for $40 it's well worth it when breaking in the barrel I don't care what anyone on here says David Tubbs is tha master of the AR he knows his [beeep] and everything I read about it people were amazed about how much accurate it made their gun. Pay top $$$ for a gun might as well break it in right.

The 1/9 twist does well with bullets in the 45gr to 62gr range in my experience. Some folks have had pretty good success with 69 grainers, but I haven't personally shot them. I have had really good accuracy with Remington 50gr. hollowpoints, Hornady 50gr. Vmax and Black Hills 55gr softpoints for critter shooting. For target, Black Hills 62gr and Remington Premier 62gr have given me good results as well as Black Hills 55gr reloads. I have recently shot some Fiocchi 55gr in the 50 round packs with decent results, but it has been too cold to do some definitive testing with it so far. All four of my ARs are 16" carbines with 1/9 twist.

all guns like different ammo. I just bought 2 boxes of the Fiocchi 55 gr 50 pks hope they do good. Prob. can't go wrong with Black hills or Hornady.

He is the only one that has RRA guns in stock and is a class act guy he is well worth buying from. I bet I sent 10 guys from this site in the last week that bought from him and [beeep] I don't even know the guy just bought 1 gun from him. But good customer service travels fast.

I had the same rifle before I switched uppers.

The Sierra 69g MK, and the Win 64g did not do to well.

I shot various brands from 50 to 60 grain and all shot very good. The best were the 53g Sierra MK, and the 50 and 60g Hornady SP. I am not sure what is available in factory ammo but I would stay with 60 grain and lower bullet weights.

Good Luck, you will like your RRA Coyote.

I bought one of the RRA Coyote's from wise as well and dawgpound is right that guy is a class act. The paperwork that came with mine said that the barrel was already lapped and there was no need to breakin the barrel.I haven't got to get to the range yet though to see. But I love the gun as far as fit and finish A+

I have the Bushmaster Varminter which comes in 1-9 twist. Shoots lights out until I start getting to the 65 grns. I tried 69 grns but did not like the paper plate size pattern. I have gone back to loading 50gr V-Max with an occasional 55gr. V-Max load.

I have stashed two lowers in anticipation of the Obamanation. I will now try Wise Wild Life Solutions for an upper.

You can shoot up to 70gns with most 1n9 barrels. I shoot 60 vmax and 65 gn Gamekings. They both work on coyotes. I don't know of a heavier game style bullet than the 65gn GKs. Most of the 69gn and heavier bullets are match bullets and shouldn't be used for hunting.

I don't want to start an argument, but try the gun with the stock barrel. RRAs shoot great. I wouldn't fire lap a good barrel. Say you could shoot 9.000 round before rebarreling typically, you will be lucky to get 6,000 rounds if you fire lap. It takes a lot of barrel life out when you fire lap.

Not to pile on, but I too bought the RRA 16" Coyote Carbine from Adam.

+ 1 on class act.

Don't forget to mention the PM $100 discount.

I haven't fired mine yet either, and wondered about the RRA manual that indicated "no need to break in...has been lapped."

Dawgpound77 - would you say more about Tubbs Final Finish?

btw, here's my rig



and the Burris FastFire (camera shows big dot, it's 4moa)
