My AR is a 1:9 twist. Can I use 50 grain with this twist rate.

Yes you can. 1/9 is just about the best all-around twist rate for common .223/5.56 bullets. That's why that twist rate is so popular with gun makers.

I DO and it seems to perform just fine.

Certainly.

You can use anything from 36 grain Varmint Grenades up to 69 grain match bullets.
