.223 ackley

G'day, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but i've been intending to rechamber my .223 rem into the ackley improved version and have heard that the .223 rem cartridges are still very accurate out of the ackley chamber.
could anybody tell me from personal experience how accurate .223 rem's are in an ackley chamber compared to a standard chamber, Group sizes would be great.
Thanks, Henry.

Look up robbobsam here on the sight. He is currently using a 223AI. From what he has shown us, looks pretty good.

Re: .223 ackley

I'm having a 223ai put together now but I'm looking at shooting the new 53Vmax.

Anyone shooting the new 53gr Vmax out of their 223ai?????

Mine is getting a 1-9tw so I doubt I could shoot the 75's even if I wanted to.

Re: .223 ackley

along with b23 could you post velocity's with that, the second thing I've been wondering is what pressure signs are there that you can read from the Ackley case?

Re: .223 ackley

I've never chronographed mine...

There really aren't any pressure signs to read from the case. At least not until you are way over the max...
