I have a Browning Model 71 in .348 Win caliber and was wondering about getting it re-chambered to .348 Ackley Improved.

Is this an appropriate conversion that you would deem appropriate and/or recommend?

I was hoping for a 100 fps velocity increase with a 180 gr Hawk bullet or a 200 gr Hornady bullet. I'm trying to get a flatter trajectory for long shots (200 yds) at deer in open country.

Any comments would be appreciated. What gunsmiths have experience in doing .348 Ackley Improved conversions?
