The 23 1/2 Corson is the .243 Winchester necked down to .234" and the .234 RCBS is the 6mm Remington necked down to .234"

For that enormous gap between .224" and .243"?

Ackley came up with several 230 rounds to use in states that did not allow 224 or 228 dia bullets. Kind of a neat idea that never caught on.If I remember right Sisk bullet co made the bullets.

A number of years ago I corresponded with Mr. Fred Huntington on the .234 RCBS and .234 Rockchucker. My goal was to neck down either a .244 Remington or a .243 Winchester cartridge with no other changes Tried making a die to swage .243 bullets to .234 but it did not work well. As things progressed I went to work overseas for many years and nothing came of the project. Think I still have the original correspondence somewhere.

I must say that Mr. Huntington was most helpful with his information and comments and it was handwritten in the days before email.

Mine was the .243 case necked down to .234" on a Ruger 77 action. It is called the 23 1/2 Corson. It was a super coyote gun and was a source of much enjoyment. Sadly the rifle was stolen some years ago but I still have the bullets and loading dies. Interesting that the dies are marked ".234 RCBS" (.244 necked down) but are in fact for the 23 1/2 Corson.
