Question barrel twist rate and bullet weight

Do longer twist rates shoot lighter bullets better?
my problem is finding the right bullet in a factory load for a 1-12" rossi .223
my buddy says a long twist need light bullets and faster twists can shoot heavier bullets.
I did use 40gr NBT and i think they did well but that was a while ago, Sportsman's Guide is sold out for now though and thats the only place i got them.
