    I am looking for information on the Ackley improved round. This is the first place I have heard of it. Where can I find loading data and peformance. Also I have heard of another round called a Mystic. I have also heard of an Allen mag Any info is appreciated.

    If you put "mystic" in the search window you will get this link.
    Long Range Hunting - scopes, rifles, shooting - Search Results

    You can do the same for Ackley improved, although you will find that there are a lot of them. If it's just the term Ackley improved, then google will get you that. The Ackley imp. rounds have an improved body taper, and modified shoulder/neck.

    P O Ackley published his "Handbook for Shooters and Reloaders Volumes 1&2, dtd 1962 will give you the details and load data for many of his conversions.

    My Sierra Reloading manual gives load info for several different AI cartridges.

    Which round are you looking for, there are lots of AI's. Many places have loading information for the common ones like the 22-250 ai, and the 257 AI or the 243 Ai. It is harder to find infoe on the less popular ones like the 6mmAI or the 308AI.
