Agreed. I'm not sure why the 20 Practical doesn't get more attention. It is pretty straight forward to produce and use. Reasonable quality brass is, well, usually free if you check the range bin.

Thanks for that Grey Wolf. On my first 20 build, I was offered the use of a 20 Extreme reamer but ended up ordering a 20-223 AI from Manson. I'm still "Extreme curious" though.

I don't own a WSM, but have shot a CZ 453 in HMR for a decade or so. I considered the WSM for a long while, even borrowing a buddy's Savage B-Mag for a live fire trial. I decided that as the HMR...

My preference on my property is not to get mad or get even, but just to have the bad actors never appear again. There is an endless supply of respectful people I can deal with instead.

I own a ranch in Alberta and I can assure you sir that by coming on my land to shoot, you are NOT providing me with a service. It's people like you that get land posted!

I agree. I had Manson make me a 20-223 AI reamer and I went with zero freebore. This won't work with long bullets like the 55gr's but I didn't want to shoot them in the 20 bore anyway. With light and...

True words of wisdom sir. As you approach perfect, the cost of each incremental step becomes excessive considering what you actually gain.

I will add a vote for internal polishing of your die being an important factor. Not just a quick polish, a good thorough half hour polish. I use Flitz on a 45/70 bore mop and go to town with it...
