    Oh, I wouldn't bother doing the AI thing. You only get 100-200 fps out of it for the amount of extra powder you burn I don't think it is worth it. Last article I read thought it may lower your accuracy....only a very small % though like 1 or 2% I believe. Maybe that is the extra recoil, don't know that was their findings though. So, you spend more money on powder for more recoil and less accuracy. You do get a little more speed though.

    400 bucks for a Rifle with the Ruger 77 tang safety, "heavy barrel in 25-06'... Not sure I could pass that up!
    Did you end up with the Rifle, 410?

    Four bills for a N.I.B. Ruger 77 sounds like a good deal. The 25-06 a magnum in everything but name is one hot sumbitch, velocity/energy it's right on the heels of the .257 Weatherby and little would be gained by going the Ackley route. Ackley himself said that most of the conversions bearing his name, weren't worth the trouble for the minor gains that some produced. The only down side I've ever seen with this cartridge is that bullet weight stops at 120 grains, and the industry standard 1:10 twist might not stabilize bullets heavier than this anyway.
