I was looking to purchase bulk ammo and ran across a dilema. All the dealer has is 55 Gr. FMJBT (Full Metal Jacket Boattail) and 62 Gr. FMJ. I was just wondering if the FMJBT is any good? My AR has a twist rate of 1/7. Will this be enough to stablize the 62 Gr. bullet? NOTE: Buying 1,000 rds of WOLF ammo. Which would be best?

the fast twist will slow your velocity down some. Why the fast twist? Unless you use bullet 65 grains or over it is working against you.
