drove that yesterday from Birmingham to near jax. I travel there all the time and really, that is my favorite. ATl is quicker but the pressure of it wears me out. And, per Mapquest, ATL is only 20 minutes quicker driving time. I do think it may be a little more quicker than that but to me, it is not worth it.
When you get south of montgomery, take Taylor road to I85 instead of going on into montgomery on 231. If you use gps, you will end up at the same place.
