Which would you build for a varmint/deer rifle and why? Can a rifle chambered in 243 be reamed out to the 6mm ackley improved?

Short action slamo dunk I'd go 243 Ack, long action I'd go 6/06. With a 14 twist for sure...grin

I had a .243 Win rechamered to a 6mm AI and it works fine. I agree with the others, however, that a .243 AI is the way to go.

Technically the 6mm AI will gain more powder space than the 243 due to the 243 having less taper and less capacity to start.

Then you seat your bullet so far in said case, in order to fit it into SA and mag constraints, that you loose the advantage, particularily with heavier bullets.
