Which upper would achieve better accuracy?

LMT 16" Chrome Lined 1:7 or a DTI 16" Chrome Moly 1:9
Ammo: XM193 55gr
Range: 300-600 yards

from my understanding, considering the type of ammo I am using the 1:9 twist would give me better results at my intended distances. In addition, I've read mixed reviews about a chrome moly having better accuracy than a chrome lined barrel...any truth to this?

those factors can only be considered if you know for a fact all other things will be equal, which they will likely not be.

That said, you will be hard pressed to find anybody to tell you that DTI is better than LMT.

Also, with 193 and either of those specs I would not expect a huge difference. Neither of those are precision barrels, and 193 isnt a precision round.
