I have been doing a little thinking about a .224 build. I was thinking over all the normal Contender Chamberings to start with. The 221, 222, 223, 222 Mag, 219 Donaldson Wasp, 219 Zipper, and the newest G2 only one the 22 Valkyrie. (A new G2 Pistol Frame with House of Arms Trigger Job is for sale on the Specialty Pistol Site that would work with a 22 Valkyrie)Then the light bulb came on. I have a set of 22-250 Ackley Improved dies (40 Deg) in the loading room, and a perfectly good Encore that a 22-250AI barrel should work on just fine. Doing a build on the MGM site it looks like a 15.875 Inch, 1-7 twist is doable also. I have had fast twist AR's over the years, as well as a fast twist 223 bolt gun. I have Sierra 69's and 77's, along with lots of 80 A-Max, 90 A-max, and Berger's in both 80 & 90 grain VLD's on hand. Brass would be all I would need to get a 22-250 Ackley Improved up and running. I should have enough bullets on hand to wash the barrel out.
Has anyone worked with a 22-250AI Encore Pistol or Bolt Pistol over the years?

USE?? Mainly a Range Gun for target shooting.
