Im impressed ...........500yds is a long ways, and 600 on an ELk..........!!
I talked to Berger, Hornady, and Sierra today.............a 1x9 is good with their 105 berger Match Hunting and back to the lighter bullets. It will stabalize the 105 Hornady Match also. So all bullet companies recomended the 1x9 twist.
Im sending my action to Carolina Precision Rifles.............I've talked to both John and Richard over the phone. They seem like really nice guys. Both worked for Kenny Jarret for a lot of years. I had them accurize my 22K Hornet.
I had my other 22 Hornet rebarreled to the .19 Badger. It is suppose to be a excellent fur gun for bobcats. Check out this web sight and the pictures @ www.jamescalhoon.com
I have only put about 100 rounds through it and have not shot any coyotes with it. In my coyote days I always used a .22-250 but what I have seen with this gun it is a fun gun shooting ground squirrels. The only draw back to the .19 is Calhoon is the only source for bullets, but with his 32gr at 3650 Im getting groups that average .291 I ordered 500 cases and 3000 bullets so that should last a while.
So this .243 AI is going to be a new and exciting adventure for me.........Its been a long time since I have had a 6mm

I would be interested in your report.......................How did you get to be a field tester for Berger? What part of the country do you live in. I live in Reno, Nevada, which allows me to get out and do a lot of shooting easily.
Its just getting a Deer or Antelope tag. My wifes family live in Idaho and they have invited me to come up this year for a Elk hunt...............We will see what happens in the Draw.
Elk with a .243??
