Got the stock back for my wife's 243AI.....yes we are a family of 243AI sluts.  If I run mount a scope and install a trigger I think it may be a good night :)
Trued rem 700, Ptg bolt, handle tigged on by Nate Dagley
Benchmark 7.5T diamond fluted by Karl
HS lightweight stock painted red with black webbing.
Rifle Basics Trigger.
Think I am gonna throw a 2.5-10 NXS on there in some talleys if I have some, if not I will rail it with some NXS UL rings.
Still undecided if I am gonna ceracoat it or leave it as is.  The only color I have right now is sniper gray.  I have sworn off ceracoat but had to buy some to repair some screwed up coating I had done a while back.
As usual sorry for the crappy cell phone pics.
I am still down in my back most days so I have been building other people's guns and having Don Geraci screw my crap together.  I am closing up shop until I get my back fixed.  Got 4 to get finished and I am done with standing in front of the lathe for a while.

A little more velocity & better case life primarily.

so its still a p shooter

Cost would be about 1300 as it sits.  If you had to pay a smith it would be about 450 more.


I really like the ackley improved version as it allows me to use my favorite powder in conjunction with my favorite 6mm bullet.  I can not get enough VV N560 in a regular 243 case with 105 Dtacs without pretty extreme compression.  With the ackley version it fits with a little less compression.


Yep it is a pea shooter, but still too much gun for little MS whitetails.
