if u plan on shooting single shot[which u would have to do with a ackley anyways] the 22br is a great choice,22-250 velocities w/o the extra 10-15 grs. of powder giving better barrel life,great brass no fireforming,although u would probably have to turn necks.in my last 22br i was getting 3150 with the 75g amax out of 26" tube and the loads were mild.my 2-dave
Chris Chris Chris.... you sound more like me everyday.. not so sure that's a good thing.. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Although.. I like the 22-250 AI.. I'm dying to see someone build a 223WSSM! As I think you remember... [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
But we have had our problems with guinea pigs!
The 22-250AI would probobly burn that barrel quick though! As would the 223WSSM
I have to lean towards what 6brguy said...I have taken quite a few guys to a dog town with a 22BR and all of them were amazingly accurate even in the wind...
But then again they all turned the necks too!
CM--cant buy a 22-250 ack at walmart either--i would vote 22br as well, but 22-250 ack would get the next nod--although, now i see you want a PD gun and have a 12 twist--now i vote 223 for volume shooting.
A wssm on the pd town oughta kill that barrel in one trip.
