The capacity of the 17/223 AI should be around 30.5 to 31.0 grains unless the shoulder is pushed forward and the neck shortened, when it increases slightly to about 31.5 grains.

You'd need a form factor of .341 for a .6 G1 bc (which will be highly inaccurate with this form factor) in this small a caliber. The 300 gr Berger hybrid has a form factor of .458 for comparison.
Are you sure the numbers are realistic, especially with the importance of meplat diameter for small calibers?

Ps:I dont intent to question the project, I really like the idea. Im just wondering wether the numbers arent a tad too optimistic?

Pps: Just realising that Im aiding in an act of felonous necromancy, sorry. Id really like to read what became of this project, though.
