I shoot a 22-250Ackley and a 243Ackley. Like em both. In process of building my 2nd 243 Ackley. This one is going to be a bit heavier barreled and a little more scope than my 1st one.

I have a 280AI, M700 with a Hart barrel. I am very happy with the performance and accuracy. I'm shooting the 160 gr AB's.

Well lets see:

a 22-250 improved, a 6br improved, a 338 ultra mag improved, a 338 lapua improved, and a 6mm-220 russian improved otherwise known as a 6ppc.

They all work quite well with the 22-250 and the 338 lapua gaining the most from being improved.

280 Ackley, 25" Krieger barrel, 1:10 twist. I've been shooting the 168 Bergers. Very impressed so far.

06/AI with a 26 inch kreiger it pushes the 208s a tad over 2800fps, dont know why I like shooting the heavy bullets in it I just do.

.280AI with a 10 twist pacnor will only shoot the 140s but does so very well

243AI with a 7.5 twist pacnor shoots the 115s like mad. Oddly enough I use the same load for fire forming with the same accuracy. It is a little compressed in the straight 243, but would work. So I dont think I am getting much of a performance advantage being AI'd but I do hate to trim brass so all is good.

Yup them PPCs are basically AI'd also....gotta go shoot mine again tomorrow, first CF match of the year Sunday.
