    New .204 load

    My 20 prac with 39 gr BLK, with photon extreme Zero at 75 yards then 2nd zero is 220 , 3450 fps gives me 3/5" at 100 , 1" at top of trajectory & 1 1/4" at 250 4.5" drop at 300 but I rarely take quarry at that distance

    Go for a 20 practical... Uses 223 brass necked down to .204, no fireforming & really easy basically you use a 223 bushing die with a 204 button & a bushing .. Still use a 223 seating die. its very economical to run... I use 25 gr XBR 8208 with 39gr Sierra Bliztkings- 3450 fps, hardly any recoil, less white out than a 223 & gives the same stopping power as I use to get when I shot 53gr vmax ( 223 ) at 3150 fps , but has the advantage of being flatter & better in the wind.
  6. I couldn't find a uk importer when I bought my 2, i ended up using a solid solution designs in Holland, but as Ronin says vertibrae in Norway also send to uk & are good to deal with
  7. Hague Convention, and the Geneva Convention, Makes it impossible to be used in that way, as its best used with an expanding bullet. personally the 20 prac is easier & if you haven't shot one - don't try to knock it, until you have shot one 😜
  8. Well, if I look in the cabinet & had to decide Factory ammo - 6.5 creedmoor ( although I've never bought factory ammo) home load - .20 practical ( cos they don't make factory ammo)

    New .204 load

    The height of the scope may answer why you suddenly don't get the same drop off. as most NV units are about 3" from the middle of the lens to the middle of the bore & most people tend to get the scope as low as possible, this gives a difference in POI over distance. Probably not as much as you have seen but may be some kind of answer. I would also hazard a guess that the dot or cross on the NV is a lot bigger than your scope
