    @Doon
    If you draw a blank I'm just about to get one made by Vulcan barrels
    He brought in 25 drills, reamers and button specially for me.
    But I had more pressing barrels I wanted made. Those 4 are nearly done and the 25 is next

    @akaroa what twist are you going to do the barrels? I would like a 1/7.5 to suit the 130 and 140,s being made now.

    Doon, have you considered the 250/3000 AI - very good numbers if it would feed in a 99

    Im pretty happy with the normal chambering, just want a new barrel on it so I can have some fun.
    Not sure it would function in the rotary mag!
    BWT a AI 250 savage would be the nuts in a bolt action rifle.

    The button is 1:8" from Winchester factory 25-35 specs
    But it can be sped up and slowed down an inch either way

    The original winchester 1:8 was for the 117 / 120 grain round nose
    I have all the gear. Chamber reamer, dies, cases, projectiles and the barrel tools but no rifle action to build it on.
    But getting on to the barrels might just be what I need to get an action sorted.

    I can always make a barrel for my Stevens 44 1/2 action because they are switch barrel frames

    Hope you find one. From what I read the 250 AI gives a 17% improvement over the standard and can send a 100 gr pill away at 3300fps. This is the greatest improvement out of all the modern cases tested. The 25/35 AI has an improvement of 25.6% enough to make Akaroa1's left leg start quivering

    If a left hand donor action became available I would be very tempted to build a 250 AI.
    3300 FPS from a 250 ai is kicking the 25-06s butt.

    Quite the contrary !
    The mere mention of improving the 25-35 case made sick come up in the back of my mouth

    I need a glass of red wine to get rid of the bad taste
    The rest of the bottle will go with the fresh ( shot a week ago ) red stag steaks for tea

    Will have to check the Ackley regulations as I'm not sure if left handers are allowed them without a special dispensation ?
    It is a great performer and I would be tempted myself for a short light weight job

    Haha regulations are not in my vocabulary, being a south paw you just do what needs to be done.
    Have to get the 99 going first but the 250ai is causing me to itch.

    Don't worry @Doon @Moa Hunter is having a dig at both of us
    I'm left handed also
