Re: H4350 and still no success

Success, I talked with Paul at the Sierra Bullet hot line..........................I told him of my frustrations. When I told him about the throut on my rifle he said somthing that I had never heard of . He said that i some cases the throut is .004-.005 in diameter greater than the bullet diameter and thus will not shoot boat-tail bullets .................He told me to try flat based ones. I bought some Sierra 100gr Pro Hunters and it made a really huge difference .......................Im going to the range to test this again ...........
I was very much encouraged.

If thats the case then it was a bad smith job. Might be worth while to get the barrel set back and the chamber and throat re-cut. Might cost you 1" of barrel length.

Re: H4350 and still no success

If it contiunes to shoot the way it did saturday I will be happy with those results.......Not sure what kind of barrel life it will have but by the end of this year I might have 600 rounds through it.......................I might guess and say that would be half way to the end.................I have never had a rifle that shot under .6 I had three groups that went .5 With the exception of Marmonts and JackRabbits I dont intend on shooting it past 400 yards on big game. I know for sure that I will draw my cow elk tag and Black Bear tag, antelope and Mule Deer is a strong possibility....................
Most guys will tell me that the .243 is not good enough for Cow Elk, but after 15 years and 15 Deer with a patched roundball muzzle loader one thing I did learn was that bullet placement is everything, and no cow elk will walk to far from a well placed .243 bullet as long as your using a well constructed bullet in the first place.

6XC any experiacne?

Does anyone hvae any experiance with the 6XC I saw it in the Berger Manual and its a very impressive Cartridge. Pretty Much does what the .243 AI will with less powder.

If I had to do it over that would work better than the .243 AI No fireforming.
I dont think I would ever do a Ackley again, unless there was pre-formed brass.................

The 6xc is a cool little cartridge. Sharing several case dimensions as the 22-250 it is NO 243ai. Not enough capacity to even give it a run for its money but, it is a dandy little round that is well noted for it's accuracy.

Will the barrel last longer? Yup. Is it more efficient? Yup. Which is where the low powder charge vs higher accuracy come from but it just doesn't have the raw horsepower of the Ackley.
