since twis rate info is allover the place my question is

What grain is the most readily avaliable normal priced .223 or 5.56 ammo?

uses: shooting beer cans and random things, little varmints at my mothers ranch, and target shooting while in the bay area. max around 300 yard. ( i have never shot that far since the army, and really dont know where to even if i wanted to) thanks for your time

The most readily available grain for .223 or 5.56 is 55 grain.

bubbaskyjacker,
where can you shoot 300 in the bay area? I would love to have a range that long to shoot at while I am in the area, usually I end up going to Sunnyvale and they only go out to 100 or maybe 150...

Chabot has a 200 IIRC
Richmond has a 200
Circle S in Petaluma has a 300
Sac Valley has a 300 AND a 600 (for matches)

Faster twist will shoot longer bullets. The heavier the bullet the longer it is. Thus for the 69, 75, 77 grains they recommend 1in9 or faster twists.

i don't know how that ties in with the OP's question but...

yes, 55 grain is going to be the most readily available commercial ammo out there. should be no problem for shooting beer cans and the like.
