thought it looked kinda cool, thought i would share... if you look in back left corner at the loaded 22-250, you can see prior to fire forming and post shooting thru the IMP, note the more square shoulder

That is cool, big difference. What velocity are you getting out of your 22-250? Thanks....

With the right twist that ought to be the ticket for launching the 90 gr'ers out to 1k.

Give us a little lowdown on the gun if you would.

    That is an awful lot of smack-down. If you don't mind my asking. How much difference in velocity is an ackley improved 22-250 vs. a regular 22-250.

    Enough to say it's worth it.

    I've never shot the .22-250 AI but have shot the .22-250 a lot. It's hard to beat for day in day out popping varmints at extended ranges. But, I have read that one of Ackleys BEST conversions was the .250-3000. While at the time, twists and powders limited what he could do with the .22-250. Now days there's a way to make it a better round.

    Still waiting to hear on all the good stuff that rifle has.....

    sorry... specs are

    Rem 700 SA, Blueprinted by Speedy Gonzalez Gunsmithing of Tx
    Factory 24" varmint bbl, reamed out to AI
    Callahan Speedlock Assembly
    AZ Precision Phoenix Bolt Knob
    Factory trigger, set to 3#
    Score High Single Shot Follower, also their bedding (done by me)
    Bell & Carlson A2 in Freedom Tan
    Seekins 20MOA base and 30mm Rings
    NF Benchrest 8-32x56

    This thing is my go-to varmint rig. I shoot 1/3-1/4" groups with it at 100yards without even trying. It is amazing how well you can get a factory barrel to shoot. It shot well prior to reaming, or else i would have thrown on a new tube during blueprinting. Cant think of my load right now, will look it up. I have put a solid 600 rounds down this baby, and it still shoots lights out. I am getting about 1MOA out of it at my 580 yard range, but this thing gets very touchy with the winds we get at that distance. On a semi calm evening i can do about 5" group at that distance, which is not to bad in my opinion. But for varmints <400 yards, its instant red spray!
