Thinking I might look into a 20 Practical. I have a couple of 204 Rugers but have a wandering eye...

That is not a good thing. The more that eye wanders, the more it costs.

My wandering eye has cost 10's of thousand$ as I am not limited to varmint rifles and I like old guns as well...

I hear that and am guilty as charged.

I put a hurt on pdogs a couple weeks ago with my .17 wsm, had a riot. Mine is a simple savage model but on a dead calm morning I can punch holes in a playing card at 235 yards.
I did not shoot pdogs out that far, maybe a touch over 175 was the longest. I have the leupold fx3 6x42 on top. Mine does best with 25 grain heads. Great times.

A suppressed WSM over some P-Dogs that haven't been shot at very much is too much fun! You can spend a lot of time shooting over them before they get skittish. Probably my favorite caliber during the first day or two of our hunts.
