I rebarreled my 223 to a 1:10 twist  24" long barrel .20 Prac..

best thing I've done in ages !! 

Great night rifle with NV, fast flat & cheap to run.. Only need 1 die & I used all the same brass & reloading kit

That's odd, the more I read about the 20 practical the more I wanted one😃, so had one built and glad I did, cracking vermin round , the only reason I'd want a 223 rather than the 20 practical is for certain deer.

Two twenties shouldn't be a problem, one for day and one for night, or both for night, digital n/v on one, thermal on the other for those ir shy foxes and misty/foggy nights😀

My shooting is mostly vermin. The vartarg is a lovely little round but I feel like I'm missing out on something. Is there anything too be gained

Hi Steve,

The stock is an hs precision , and was bought probably 10 years ago by my old(young) shooting buddy, who used it on his rem 700, he packed the stock with lead and filled it with resin so when using it with his archer n/v there was no recoil , thats why it weighs 18lb now with heavy barrel , it's a Iump but I love shooting it, the thumbhole grip is so comfortable, i aquired it and had the rifle built in his memory, and always think of him while using it, he would love how it shoots!!, I believe he bought it from south Yorkshire shooting supplies.

There's a couple of pics on my 20 practical thread,of it sitting on the board on the front of my quad, its still in black primer, I will paint it one day😃.
