    I think the shape of AI'd rimless bottleneck cases makes them less reliable in feeding for .30-06 self-loader actions.

    Add 6 inches of barrel length to a standard .30-06 and you'll get about the same velocity as the AI version plus it would be easier to shoot accurately due to less recoil. Plus more barrel life, too.
