No, you can turn just about any cartridge to Ackley improved. As long as it had less than a 40 degree shoulder to start with, you just rechamber with a 40 degree shoulder and it becomes Ackley Improved. The funniest Ackley has got to be the .22 Eargesplitten Loudenboomer (.22-378AI :eek.

I have a 243 AI and am shooting 105gr Amax's with great results out to 600. I had 308Nate put one of his brakes on it and now can watch my hits even up close.
