Hi Guys, Here are a couple of pics of my new 243 Ackley. Remington 700 short action, fully blueprinted, Holland bolt handle, Holland recoil lug, Pac-nor 26", 3 groove #8 contour 1-8 twist barrel, Rifle Basix trigger, Skim bedded into a HS precision Pro2000 stock, Warne tactical base, Leupold Mk4 Rings. Leupold Mk4 LRT 8,5-25x50 with M1 turrets Versa-pod. Fireforming load consisting of 90grn Lapua Scenar over a 42 grn charge of Win 760,in Lapua 243 brass, formed at a rate of 20 an hour in 10 shot strings. Superbly accurate with 2 sub 1/2" 10 shot groups without really trying. I am looking forward to proper load developement in the next few weeks, but did an experiment with some Sierra 75 grn Varminter's. I thought that a top end 243 load of H4350ext would be a good starting point and i might just get away with the 1-8 twist, but out of 10 cases loaded only 1 bullet made it to the target. The rest vapourised in a puff of smoke about 30 yds infront of the muzzel. Going to try some 87grn V-max's, i dont think the heavy 105 grain bullets are worth it untill ranges out to 1000yds come into play. I am satisfied with the performance of the Scenars on paper and will most likely be using them on varmints. Ian.
