    No iron sights so barrel length is not the important. I really like Ruger's mags but past barrel issues keep me away from them. I may have to try on in 17 HMR.

    X-caliber has any twist you could possible need for 22 cal AR barrels from 6 to 16 twist! I'm pretty sure my next barrel for an AR will come from them. http://www.x-caliber.net/custom-ar-barrel

    One last thought on the matter for me..... A good quality barrel will probably mean just as much as twist rate when it comes to accurately shooting our bullets made from 22lr brass. For example a well made 7 twist barrel from a known barrel maker...

    My 9 twist AR barrels also shot bullets made from 22lr brass in the 55 grain range just fine as well. Those where both Armalite 24" barrels. Don't think you will go wrong with anything from 9-12 twist and as you have seen there are those of use...

    With that bullet any of common twists will work but what is going to be the most accurate. This is based on the 6mm BR but it covers the accuracy related considerations with the different twist rates. http://www.6mmbr.com/barrelFAQ.html

    Per the OP its for BT swage dies. Jackets will be from 22 cases. Normally I recommend faster twists for jacketed bullets but for jackets from 22 cases over spinning seems to magnify any imbalances. With a bullet like a Nosler Ballistic Tip or...
