    7mm-08 Ackley Improved

    7mm-08 Ackley Improved - anyone have any experience with this AI.
    ​I have a 7mm-08 and well just wondering, it seems from ballistic tables that it works better for heavier bullets i.e. 150 to 160 grain range?

    Unless you go with a longer barrel, you won't notice much when loaded to the same operating pressures.~Muir

    I had one in 7 mm 08 ackley improved nothing wrong with it just decided to change
    rifles and they didn't do a barrel for the new gun
    if you decide to go down that route then I have about 100 lapua once fired cases
    i would sell reasonable price also a set of dies

    Thanks Muir and Roedinator, looked at a few more powders and loads and it seems although there is an improvement it's not as much as I anticipated . Also I'm getting one of my rifles re-barreled to a .280 Rem (maybe AI, not sure yet) which I'll load for the heavier 7mm's and keep the 7mm-08 for the 120's and 140's (as it is I shoot a lot of Reds with it and it ain't broke!).
