Anyone have input on shooting Agula SSS 60gr through a 5.56 barrel 1:9 twist with a can on the end? My 22lr can is threaded 1/2-28 same as an AR. I shot a box of the 60gr subs throgh my buddys conv kit in a S&W carbine and they ran fine. Bullet holes in the paper were nice and round so I should be fine, right?

back in the day we used the 22lr kit on the indoor range with the old slow ROT m16a1's. they worked pretty good.
some have used the kit with 1-9 twist barrels and got spotty accuracy.
the 60gr loads should help as they are more the correct length for this rate of twist.
having a can shouldn't affect accuracy much if any at all.
i haven't used any 22lr kits yet with the 1-9" twist so i can't say, though you should be OK with the 60gr AFAIK .
