Yes its most definately going for the 243 ackley improved!!!! I have always fancied a custom gun so saved up and bought me a RPA INTERCEPTOR , This has a RPA action and trigger , BORDER 1 in 9 twist 26 inch barrel and a robertson stock. This rifle was worth every penny!!! I was running fireformed fully prepped LAPUA brass / FEDERAL 210 MATCH PRIMERS / 105 A-MAX bullets seated ten into lands ans a charge of 47 GRAINS OF VIHT N-165 powder . This load was averaging 3150FPS and grouping in the 0.300 inch , thats when i done my job properly in testing it!!!!!!! This load was a great long range varminting load!!!! If you want to know any more please ask and will try to help if i can!!!!!!!!! Regards too you all...........VARMINTER........ :D

wish i had that sort of money must have cost a bomb!

Hi blando hope you are well , the answer to your question is yes they are expensive but they are worth it in the accurracy they deliver , money is one thing i do not have plenty of!!! I am fortunate that i live with me dad and we share house expendages and after that i spend most my money on me rifle shooting , whether its target / varmint / deer or out foxing.. Hope you do not mind me saying that some factory rifles shoot fantastic , but if you save for a custom rifle its more than worth it!!!!!!!!!! HAPPY HUNTING FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!! :good::good:

Hi foxshot thanks for your question and hope you are well!!! I own two rifles now - the sako 75 in 6PPC and leupold MK4 6-20 - 50 scope and the RPA 6.5-284 with the NIGHTFORCE . I sold the 243 ackley so i could afford the 6.5-284. Now as for long range varmints i have enjoyed this very much . My personal best started at 427 YDS bunnie , then it went to 487YDS bunnie with the ackley impoved which my mate martin shares with me because the other bunnie stayed there!!!!!! this was over twelve months ago now this year martin has had a 642YDS bunnie with his 243 remington and i was fortunate to get a 662YDS bunnie with me 6.5-284, took 3 shots to get on though!!!! PLease do not think i am boasting because over the years we have spent alot of time testing loads @ 100 / 200 / 300 / 400 / 500 YDS this we do regulary and then this year testing @ 700YDS. Its when you connect at these ranges it makes all the testing worth it!!! I use a LEICA LRF 800 rangefinder and a SPEEDTECH windmeter and a ballisics program sheet to tell me drop and drift at different ranges and wind speeds. I am far than a expert at this but belive me this long range varminting is sure fun!!!!! IF you have any more questions please ask and i shall do me best to answer them. HAPPY LONG RANGE VARMINTING FRIENDS!!!!!!!!! :good::good:

that's some impresive shooting , i dont have the ground where i can get those type of range shot's not that i am capable of doing it though , sounds like you realy know youre stuf , i dont know if you have heard of the dvd beyond beleif long range hunting , excelent dvd you would like it , if you havnt seen it and would like a copy pm me and i can sort something out hopeing to get a 300 yd fox this season then work out , i know it's not a patch on the shot's you can take , a friend of mine has a custom 6 ppc and before he moved to canada he said i could get a good setup if i bought a second hand remi then got border barrels to do work on it ,new barrel etc for a reasonable amount ,maybe sometime fingers crossed
