I am currently about to do a 243 ackley build and am wondering if the 243 ackley loaded with heavy bullets 100grs and up will fit in the aics mags?

thanks scott

As long as these are the AICS mags (and not the double stack AI AW mags) you shouldn't have any problems. I'm running 6.5-08 AI in my AICS mags and they work just fine.

They do just fine with my vanilla 243. Simply put, make sure you throat accordingly.

Throated to maximize available case capacity or throated to work within mag confines?
