Ackley is easy!

Doing an Ackley conversion on a rimmed cartridge is about as easy as you can get. I recently rechambered my model 94 to 30-30 AI. As usual Ackley's claims for velocity were a bit ambitious, but the reality was still significant.

One thing I have to say is that lots of folks will tell you that AI in a tube magazine rifle is a waste of time. Not so. There are lots of bullets that work fine. You just need a bullet with enough flat meplat that it covers half or more of the primer ahead. That's my opinion anyway. I suppose it may be pure fools luck, but I've put at least a couple thousand semi-pointy bullets through tube magazines with no ill effects.
