I just picked up a used Ruger #1 with heavy barrel and 1:9 twist. With this
twist should bullets 55 grains and less group better than heavier weight bullets?

A 1:9 twist should allow you to shoot up to 70gr. bullets.

The 1:9 is probably best suited for the 50-70gr. bullets.
That's not to say lighter bullets won't be accurate, but they may shoot better with a 1:12 or 1:14 twist.

This is just a generalization so understand there are always exceptions to the rules.
There are more experienced here than I on the .223/5.56 if you need more precise info than that. (I sure they be along shortly)

Confused Mojo-this could go on for days so i'll give you some for instances and you can decide,I have a 1in 12 223 that wil shoot 50's and less with pin point accuracy-but hates any thing above 50gr.I have a couple of other 1in12s that will shoot 40's to 63 gr all less than 1&1/4moa.I had a couple of 1-10s that hated anything less than 60 gr but loved 63,69,70gr bullets,but not heavier!One of those 1in 10s would shoot 40grs at reduced velocity(1500fps)at moa!I have had a couple of 1in 9s that would shoot 50's moa,63'smoa,69s moa,hated 70s and above.I had a 1in 8 that hated everything except 69s and 70s-never tried the 75s or 77s with it tho.What does all of this mean?HIIK!So many variables to cut it down to a specific type of bullet.Variables to include;# of lands&grooves,type of lands and grooves,twist rate,length of meplate on bullet,bullet type and construction,ballistic coeficient of bullet,powder,primers,cases,temperature.And on a ruger #1 heavy barrel varminter that I have in 25-06-where you position your hand or resting spot on the forend of the stock..........Lots to think about Confused
