I am sure you guys are getting sick of this 6mm ai subject but I'm about done i think. I found a real good deal on a remington varminter chambered in 243. I would like to buy it and put on a custom barrel chambered in 6mm ai. I ordered some brass and loaded a dummy to have a reamer made off of. I know the ackley case has no saami coal specs, but at the maximum length for the standard case, the bullet is RIGHT at the end of the magazine. It sure does look deep too. If my riflings move out ANY i either wouldnt be able to touch or couldnt use the magazine. I know a savage is longer, but I really like the 700. They are like a small block chevy, parts are cheap and every where and you can get about anything you want. My question to somebody that has one, what is your coal when you are touching the riflings. Can you still use the magazine? Is there any disadvantage to having the bullet so deep other than it just doesnt look good. It does help that the 6mm has such a long neck. I really dont want to use a long action if i can keep from it.
