I just sold my 243 ackley improved so now I am on the hunt for a new one. Do you think it would be worth while to ackley improve a 22 inch barrel or should I chuck it and start with a 26 in tube? I plan on shooting 55 to 75 grain bullets. If you have any incite please give me your opinion.
My 243AI has a 24 inch, 1 in 8 twist, number 4, Shilen barrel on it, I don't miss the other 2+ inches or the 100 fps velocity loss. It looks like any other custom rifle and shoots great with the short barrel.
