6mm Ackley Imp

I just got my 6mmAI in 10 twist. I built this gun for varmint & deer. for Deer I will use 95 gr or 100gr. For varmints I plan to use 87 vmax to 95 Vld bergers. I want to use a varmint bullets because the vld's fail to open up at long range.I have n160,RL22,H4831sc, and H414. What other combo work good for you.

Re: 6mm Ackley Imp

Hi, great choice, (6mm AI) my suggestion for deer would be barnes 85gr. XLC, (bc.401) MV 3600fps with 51.5gr RL19, energy at 500yd 1078 ft.lbs. with 100yd zero bullet path is only 26.1/2in low. 85gr bullets in the 6mmAI seem to have more energy then even heavier 6mm bullets and less drop. just my 2 [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
without God their is no hope for this country

H4350 + Nosler 70 BT and RL22 behind 105 Amaxes work well for me..

Re: 6mm Ackley Imp

u might even try the 88g ltb from berger they worked well 4 me in a couple different rigs out to 600 yds on less windy days,i have found the 95g bergers to be kind of fickle,i have heard that the ogive location varies alot from bullet to bullet[never felt like like taking the time to measure though as i found better accuracy with different bullets] ,but if u can get them to shoot they are a great lr. performer.just out of curiosity why did u go with a 10 twist?-my-2-dave
