Well that is awesome. When I talked to Berger they would not confirm that they would run the bullet annually. If that is the case it may alleviate having the financial burden of hoarding several...

Where did you hear this? Just asking, not being confrontational. Trying to decide how many is enough to be sitting on.

Now everyone needs to do the same with the 172 30gr HPBT and the 25gr Match. No not to step on the toes of custom makers in the States but up here in Canada the customs are hard to get.

Well that's a pickle. If I have to shoot a 35gr 204 to have good performance on coyotes I'll stick with a big 17 that has the capability of shooting the 30gr bullet at 4100fps.

I'm up in Canada so I should be able to get Hornady, Sierra, and Berger bullets in the 39 and 40gr flavors. The cost to import other heavier bullets is really not an option.

Of the three bullets I...

20 BR with 40gr bullets

I'd like to try a 20 cal for harvesting fur. I want something that is at least going to be the ballistic equal to my 17 shooting 30gr bullets at 4000 fps plus and some additional downrange energy...

Lots of load data here and on Predator Master forum on this chambering. I shoot something very similar to a Predator which should be slightly smaller that than the 204 parent case. I use VV-550, and...

When I used to shoot a Swift, I used the Sierra 40gr under VV550. Velocities were running over 4400fps. Very minimal fur damage but it did not bang flop them as I thought they would.

And then once we get barrels there is the joy of sourcing bullets or having been greedy/smart enough to hoard a bunch of the good stuff.

Exchange, import fees that get passed on to the customer, shipping, and federal and possibly provincial tax. Difference between being in the States and Canada.

First 17 barrel was a Lilja. Last season I went with a Pac Nor mostly because of the price. Lilja was going to be 650.00 plus. Got the Pac Nor for nearly 200.00 less from Hirsch Precision who imports...

Last barrel I had on a .17 Wildcat that is nearly identical to a Predator was a Lilja, barrel met my expectations except for barrel life and I doubt that was Lilja's fault. Came time to rebarrel and...
