I shoot the Hornady 24 NTX in both my 20 TAC and 20VT. They are accurate
and explosive on p-dogs. My shooting buddy also uses them with his 20 Tac.
Are go to bullet for the 20 calibers.
Also the Hornady 17 cal, 15.5 gr NTX is an excellent choice for the 17 Fireball.

Using N133 in the 20 Tac's. AA2200 or H4198 in the 20VT

Barry. Don't know if you are logged into Accurate Shooter.com or not, but you can still go into their web page and on the main page, left side click on 20 cal info and you will find some information of loading the 20 practical.
As Varmint Shooter mentioned a couple powders that work very well in 20 cal. there are others shown.
You just have to take a start load with one of them and using your 24 NTX work up a load for your rifle.

The NTX bullets work very will in all my 20, 22 an 17 calibers also.

Thanks Bill K & also Varmint Shooter. I'll certainly follow up on the Accurate Shooter site for some load development.
Again , very much appreciated.

Barry, I suggest you start with a powder that is easily available here, AR2207, start at 20 or 21 gns and then go up young man.

So Sorry Mark , missed your post/reply. Yes I've stuck with the Aus stuff for the time being & have started using BM1 ( 133 equivalent ) with pretty reasonable results.
Thanks all
Barry
