I need some input from people with experience! I am considering a 22-250 on a custom action in a Manners TF3 stock. I wanted to run this as a repeater with AW mags. Has anyone built something similar to this? Will the caliber feed reliably from the mags or is the shoulder just to steep? I appreciate any help.

I just did multiple test feedings and all work flawlessly. These were on 22-250 dummies with short varmint bullets as well as longer 80 gr SMK's. AI and AW fed as advertised.

I have been running 22-250 in AICS mags for a while now. In a 10rnd mag, 10rnds don't do so well because of the case taper and the front of the bullets start to criss-cross 7rnds works perfectly.

in a 5rnd mag no issues.

I run 80gr amax; pimp titties

Agreed, most I can get to feed out of the 10 rounders is 9 and sometimes the first round needs a little help. This is with 53gn Vmax.
