    .20 practical

    Hi, to be really honest, I'd find your own load and work up i use 8208 XBR, but it's in short supply.. When it's gone I will move over to CFE223 use load data for .20 Tactical & go from there... I only shoot the 39's as I wanted something for fox that I know would work every time without question - that's not to say that the 32's don't work, I just don't have any experience of them

    .20 practical

    Mines fantastic ! Thanks Bradders As he says he built me one using my rem700 223 as a starting platform went for a sassen 1:10 twist 24" barrel, i use 39gr Blitzkings & my Load runs them at 3700fps, fast, flat & deadly, explosive on impact using a pred 8 sound mod, the impact sounds loader than the muzzle report. as for dies : I use the standard 223 capping die, and a Redding 223 bushing die with a .204 expander pin - the bushing will depending on your brass thickness but it's an easy & simple process. The shoulders will need knocking back on first load from 223 but it's not hard to get right. Every thing else stays the same from 223. honestly the best think I've done as far as a varmint rifle, Bradders is a good guy to deal with & made the process easy. i use mine with a photon NV & with my setup I zero to 85 yards , this gives me 1" + / - out to 255 yards
  3. There is one of my rifles on it. all my rifles have rails fitted now & can just clip in / out just slacken the knob and it moves anywhere at any angle, tighten to lock in place. Can accommodate any height from prone to standing i fitted a sling on mine and easily carried across shoulders, no effort.
  4. I use a Manfrotto tripod with arca Swiss rails on my rifles, to be honest it's the best thing I've ever used as far as sticks go, heavier than most but far more stable & I can let go of the rifle and it won't move. I use mine all the time & would never go back to using anything else.
  5. I use a pred 8 with the .270 ( blue ) defuser on a 6.5 creedmoor my mate has a pred 8 with a 30 cal defuser on his creedmoor & another guy we shoot with has a pred 12 on his creed with the .270 defuser. in terms of volume db, the 30 cal defuser sounds like an artillery peice, but there is not much of a great difference between the pred 8 or 12 with the .270 in.

    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

    20 cal

    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.
  10. 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
  11. 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 ?
  12. 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
