Re: My new rifle project .243 Akley
I have a couple of 243 ackleys, one with an 8 twist bbl and the other with a 7.5. The 8 twist was built for the 107's, but i have played around with the 87's and 80 grain BT's for shooting coyotes. They both shot just fine. I can get +3700 with the 80's and that's not even pushing them too hot.
I also give a vote to the 8 twist as you can get some great ballistics w/ the 107, 105, etc. and it will also shoot the lighter bullets, but if you went w/ the 12 twist, you would never be able to work up the heavy bullets if you decided you wanted too some day.
just my opinion.
