    Jared, That'll be no problem in a 6mm. Is that a 6mm Rem.? Do you have a custom barrel, I've never heard of a 8 twist on a 6mm? J

    its a 243AI,it started life as a 12BVSS-S
    .223,but i got bored and bought a prechambered barrel from sharp shooters supply and installed it myself with a new recoil lug and a stock from D and B supply(great stock).I formed 50 cases for it today with some lapua cases and 80NBTS,it shot well but now I am looking to find a load for the 95NBT and 105 Amax's if you know anyone shooting a 243AI i would like to hear some loads.
