    Ammo question for AR gurus

    Just a quick question on ammo for my AR. The twist is 1 in 7" and is a 16" Daniel Defense barrel. Am I ok to shoot the Black Hills 52gr moly coated hp in this or will the moly coat mess up the chrome lining? I've always had outstanding accuracy with this round in my single shot .223. Only looking at this ammo based on price $22 for 50 rounds and past experience. If it's a no go, no big deal.

    It's absolutely fine to shoot. Nothing is going to mess up the chrome lining. Steel case is fine, coated steel case is fine, etc. The nly thing you ever need to be careful of, besides tracers, is any corrosive ammo. In that case, pour some hot water on it then oil it up again.

    No problem. Keep in mind, there are a lot of misconceptions about ammo in general. It wouldn't be a bad idea to punch the bore with some quality bore cleaner after a while though. It definitely won't hurt anything. Enjoy.
