The SU16 is a little bit lighter than the M! so the width of the sling should be adequate for most needs.
It is not so much an issue of how narrow it is. But with some of the lighter weight nylon webbing it tend to fold over on it self and that makes it really narrow.

Thicker webbing or leather tends not to do the fold over twist thing.

I gotta stop worrying about slings, flash hiders, optics and get down to business acquiring new heavier ammunition. My AR is a 1:9 twist and therefore can stabilize lighter ammo (which I have plenty of). I'm just learning about barrel twists and the weight of bullets. I do have plenty of PMC M855 62 grain rounds, which is what I am using so far. I guess I need to get at least 55grain and up then. I love HP's but can't seem to find many that are heavy, good, and "budget priced".
I'll figure it out, although any suggestions of what bullets this thing likes to eat, would be tremendous...

Mine seems to like anything I feed it.

Even cheap steel crap.

Well, what I need to do is get to the range, there is one here in my small town but it is filled up. I'm going to head to the free one next week, and make this baby chirp! I'm going to take mostly M855/SS109 and some 45&50 grain Hollow Points.. See what this thing likes to eat...

Most of the Ammo I feed mine is 55 grain. Although I have tried 69 with equally good results.
