Iíd probably build a .223. I like to shoot as cheaply as possible.

.223 Ackley Improved, 1:7.7 twist.

Lapua brass, CCI 450, IMR-8208, 80 gr ELD-M

Soon as my smith finishes chambering, I will have it. I bought a .223 action specifically for this build.

I recently built a 25/45 Sharps on a Remington with a Lawson thumb hole stock.
Haven't shot it yet.
Brass with correct head stamp is available for a reasonable price or just neck up 223.

Sorry, should have said "other then .223" cuz I have three but didn't think about JG and the AI. That would be nice with a heavy bullet and tight twist.

Compare brass price.

Sure the A.I. has to be fire formed. Or, hydro formed if a guy is inclined so.

He would need a new bolt, as well.

Tried to find the bolt face but since there is not many out there, didnít see anything clearly. I just saw that the parent case is bigger than 223

Would a .22 Creedmoor work with that bolt face?

Same bolt face size as a 6.8 SPC. I looked that up for a friend yesterday that cannot find .224 Valkyrie brass.
