I'm planning ahead for a small calibre varmint / fox gun.
I currently have a slot for a .223REM and sound mod on my FAC. But love the sound of a .20TAC instead. Just a few things are making me doubt this choice.
- Cost of a semi-custom rifle as no factory rifles in this calibre vs an off the shelf remmy 700 (yes I know the quality of the rifle will be completely different)
- Availability of factory brass in .20TAC, I see people are having problems getting it
- Cost of resizing die if the above cannot be found, and it's availability
- For 100 - 200 yrd shooting at Foxes and rabbits, is there really that much noticeable difference in the ballistic
I know one option could be to get a Remmy 700 SPS Tactical as planned and later have it rebarrelled for 20TAC, but again is it worth this or just get a semi-custom made from day one.
