    All,

    I recently purchased an LMT CQB with a 16" barrel and a 1 in 7" twist.

    Can anyone recommend the best factory ammo. for it?

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Have one. You'll love it. I'm still in my trial and error stages on narrowing down factory ammo purchases.
    But I'll be on this thread more often to see what kind of feedback you're getting and whether I have made any choices by then

    Anything from 69 grain specialty loads to 55 grain M193 should work just fine.

    Buy a case of whatever is coming out of Lake City at the moment and I doubt you'll ever have a malfunction or any ammo related accuracy complaints.

    Justin...Home defense mostly. (i.e. shots 25 yds. and under).

    Many will recommend a 55 grain hollow point/soft point/ballistic tip to minimize overpenetration.

    I am not concerned, so I currently load Black Hills or Ultramax 68gr hp (w/cannelure).
