Somethin' you might try to get a little more go for not much dough is to ream 'er out to 22-250AI (Ackley Improved). Won't reach out like an AM, but every little bit helps. Google, Clusty or Dogpile 22-250AI or 22-250 AI (with a space) and you'll find volumes of ballistics and load data. Should be able to find a reasonable quality smith nearby with a reamer, but if you find a smith and he doesn't have the reamer, try renting one at http://www.4-dproducts.com/ with the Ackley on this page on the far right column, 6 down: http://www.4-dproducts.com/display.php?g...32d93e611bbdb85

(don't know these people, but others on other v-bulletins have and it's like netflix with a time limit)
