Re: 6MM ACKLEY OR 243 ACKLEY
[ QUOTE ]
UncleB, I am probably going to go with the 6MM Ackley. I can use 7x57 Norma brass if Winchester doesn't work for me. I am currently going with a 28" barrel, however, I am thinking about going to a 30" instead. Do you think a 30" barrel will be too long. I will be using either 75grn V-MAX and 87grn V-MAX. If I use the 87grn V-MAX, I should get around 3700 fps in the 28" barrel. But if I go with the 30", I could probably get around 3800 fps and that would be impressive. What do you think.
[/ QUOTE ] I shoot a 6mmAI and your not going to get near the velocity with the 87 gr bullets, you will be around 3300fps you may get 3400fps if you push it, my rifle has a 26" barrel. What you need to look at is the 6x284 or 6x06, I shoot the 6x284. Well good luck.
