Re: Ackley Improved Question
Hate to revive an old thread, but this one piqued my curiosity, as I am building a .25-06 AI...
I read on page 1 that someone said you can buy standard .25-06 Rem neck-sizer dies, and just use them for your .25-06 AI once you've fireformed your brass into the AI chamber. Is this correct, or will I have to buy a $150 worth of dies?
It would make sense, because the .25-06 Rem, and the .25-06 Rem 40* Ackley Improved both have the same neck dimensions, b/c that's how PO Ackley designed it.
If so, that saved me about $120 towards buying new Norma brass...
Please can someone either confirm or deny that I can use standard RCBS Neck-Sizer .25-06 Remington dies for loading for my .25-06 Ackley Improved?
