New 243 AI build to the Range...NEW VIDEO

Took the new rifle out to stretch it's legs a little. Did some load development at 100 then moved over to 200 - 500 steels. I'll post 100 yard stuff when wife gets back with her camera. Took these with mine.

Loaded 47 to 49.5 grains of RL 25 and 115 DTAC moly in .5 grain increments.

5.5 MOA adjustment to 500 Ram. 5 shots where close to 2 1/4 inches on Ram.





Got wife's camera here... 2 best groups 5 shots each.

Nice looking rifle, NICE looking range! I've always loved the 243, I'm sure I'd love the AI even more.

Thanks....

George did a Great Job !! http://www.precisionshootingsports.com/

Really happy with it...

Do some more load development and tweak seating depth and play with primers...

Most coyotes I kill don't care to much

Scott, I would not hesitate (as yourself) to have George build another 243 Ackley seems he knows them well. I've been shooting some sick groups as of late and I am convinced this is the most accurate rifle I own.

Not sure if it matters but I switched from the 210M's to the regular 210's and seemed to get rid of the stragglers (you know the ones that take your groups from .25 to .375 )

You better be careful with what you post he may want that one back after his sheep hunt.

I miss the one I sold you..... But the new one is great too !!

It is hard to sell rifles, but was the way to get this one done.

His rifles are very accurate !! I shot some great groups and put a lot of coyotes down with the one you have now.

Enjoy it and if you ever sell it.. I got first dibs :-)

Scott, beautiful finished rifle. Great looking range.

Here's a question for you since you do lots of predator hunting. The 243AI is a bit on the heavy side of things for a predator cartridge, but is there a pelt friendly bullet/load that you would use for coyotes in the 243AI?

tks
