You can't chamber a T/C 223 to a 223 Ackley. If your gunsmith tells you you can, run away. To properly set up the Ackley chamber you need a crush fit for new brass. The barrel needs set back about .010". As far as velocity goes, I got a hugh increase with mine usign 40g bullets. Mine is in a Rem 700 and am getting over 4000 fps with a 26" barrel and a 40g bullet.
