    If it’s a straight Ackley Improved, the 243AI is a comparatively common wildcat. I used an RCBS set in the past. Nowadays I would use a reading FL die set with a neck bushing.

    I'm pretty sure Jimm is talking about using a standard 243 win. Lee collett die to neck size the 243 AI rounds.

    I don't have a 243 AI but I've used the standard Lee collett dies for my 22-250 AI and 223 AI.......works like a charm.
