I’m with y’all on the 243, my Ackley is bumping 3900. I think I’ll just stick with what I’ve got. I don’t see any gain.

I agree on the 6mm ARC. Mine is shooting less 1/2 MOA at 100 yards. Stag arms 18 in with 1/7 twist

The power difference of the .243 AI really came apparent when I buddy and I were shooting rock chucks once. A hit with a .223 would kill the chuck and they would tumble down the rocks. A hit with the .243 AI would blow them off the rock they were on with pieces of them going everywhere.

Try shooting a pond turtle with a 243AI. LOL, just small chunks, really small chucks at that. A 22-250AI does pretty much the same to.

A 243 is a real coyote hammer but it’s not very nice to fur!
