1/7 twist is generally considered ideal for heavier combat type weighted loads (62gr-77gr, etc.) BUT since Bushmaster typically uses 1/9 twist in their ARs they probably figured they'd just use the same barrels they had already. Which should have made it cost less, but apparently they didn't think so. Guess they believed people would be dumb enough to over pay for an Adaptive Combat Rifle with a 1/9 twist and a fixed stock. Just plain nutty.
