I have only used 55 grain & no problems whatsoever.



To save you a phone call, I called SIG and they said either 55 or 62 was fine.

Also said for the 516 that 5.56 and 223 were both acceptable ammo. Your owners manual says the Same.

As far as brand I shoot Federal, PMC, & Remington (though not as much Remington as the others).

Thanks for the info. I have no problem shooting both through my rifle but
I was browsing other forums and saw a post that stated the 516 performed the best with the 62gr 5.56, i couldn't find anything else on it so i brought it up on this forum.

I've shot all types, brass, steel, .223 and 556...the Sig 516 ate them all ;)

The 516 has 1:7 rate so it likes heavier bullets,the 62gr does put a tighter group down range past the 100 yrd mark, YMMV.
