Re: 30.06 ackley - anyone tried it?
I've been shooting the 06AI for about 8 years, And next to my .375 H&H AI it's my favorite cartridge. I currently use 52.5 gr Varget behind a 172gr solid, lake city 1967 brass with cci br4 mag primer to get 3050fps as my pet load. I get an e.s. of about 45 with the varget (wish it were better) but I can live with it. It shoots into a minute all the way down the range to 1100yd, but with imr 4831 and win lrm primers I got better groups (sub 8 at 1000m one out of three times-the other 2 were probably just me!

Hair, not air!
