Information needed for 6x55 Ackley



I need feedback on a 6x55 Ackley. Good or bad. I would be using it for ground hogs and deer.

Performance should be very close to the 6mmRem AI which is saying... very good. Would stick with common brass unless I had a bunch of Swede brass kicking around.

The 243AI is also a barn burner. Just make sure you get a twist rate fast enough to stabilize the heavier bullets for your deer.

The 95 to 105 gr bullets will work well for deer.

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
