Wow i'd be happy just seeing that target at 300. Any idea of the make of the berrel? Twist?

there is a faint 5.56 mark on the barrel , thats it. i bought the used upper so no info about previous owner or twist rate. i need a bigger target at 400 yds. the barrel is heavy contour under the handguards & normal diameter from front sight forward. that 22" wide target box looks real small at 300 yds. this is my general purpose rifle. usually take it hiking.
