A: Thanks for reaching out Arlan! That's the optimal barrel twist for this round's 70 grain bullet. I'm sure you're aware of a shorter barrel's accuracy limitations, but at that range you'll be able to do whatever you want to a target all the same.

A: Thanks for reaching out Kao! The 5.56x45 isn't widely regarded as the best deer cartridge – it was developed for combat, not hunting. That said, plenty of hunters put the 5.56's relatively limited effective range for deer to good use! As a general rule you want 1,000 ft lbs of energy on impact when you're hunting a whitetail. This cartridge should retain that much energy until about 112 yards. Of course, with good aim you can absolutely extend this round's effective range for deer well beyond that distance. I'd recommend a barrel with a 1:8" twist or faster. That will give its comparatively heavy bullet the in-flight stability it needs to deliver its best accuracy.

A: Hi Marcus. Thanks for looking to LuckyGunner.com for your ammo needs. These will fit into a standard Pmag. I have used these personally, and also use Pmags almost exclusively. Let me know if I can assist further in any way. Have a great day!

A: This round will work from a 1:9 twist barrel. It is near the upper end of optimal but will still perform well.
