The more I use my 20P the more I love it…. I can’t ever see myself never using a 22-250, but that 20P is pretty hard to beat. Love my 222, 221 and 22 hornets too. Love my 223 and 6AI too…. Hell I love them all!

When I go PD shooting later this summer I’ll be taking 17 Hornet, 204, 222, 223, 22-250 & 22-250 AI.

A lot of our shooting starts at 300 yards. Often the 17 & 222 won’t get as much use as the bigger cartridges. Last year I brought these cartridges and the range was most often 400+ yards and it was windy. The 22-250 AI got the most usage.
Three of these have bench rest stocks and the 22-250AI is one of them - very little recoil.
I think the 204 maybe the most practical for PD’s. But I find the bigger cartridges get a lot more use when the range is long and the wind is high.
I have thousands of 223 brass so it gets used a lot. The 223AI would be a welcome cartridge that squeezes in the midst of these, so would the 222 Mag.

Fast twist .223AI is still where it's at for me these days.

40 gr VMax @ 3,800 or so fire forming.

75 ELD's @ 3,090 in formed brass with a great BC and makes pink mist at crazy distances.

Don t miss my 223 ackley one bit. It was wonderful when I used it. But the 20tac has replaced it
There has never been a time I wished it had it back
Still shoot a lot of 223 and 22-250
But 80 percent of prairie dogs get snot wit 222 and 20 tac
Coyotes 223 and 22-250

Since this came out I've built a couple 20P's and am enjoying them.


After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Do 20 Tacticals feed in AR's OK, or do you have to modify the mags?
