I am trying to finish a mini recce type AR, 13.7" bbl with ⅛ twist. What bullets do you guys suggest for me to start trying to find?

So The Mk 12 Recce Rifle is an 18" 1:8 twist barrel that was designed to get the most accuracy and velocity for heavy projectiles (70+ grains).

75gr Hornady ELDs, 77gr Sierra Match Kings are favored in my 18" Recce Rifle.

The shortened barrel length will give up 100-200 fps velocity.

Hope that helps.

A 1/8 twist barrel stabilizes pretty much any bullet weighing between 40 and 77 grains. The specific bullet depends on your preferred type of shooting.
