Re: 223ai

Outlaw6, I do have pictures posted! All you need to do is read my article on this web site called "the black rifle comes of age". Humm, actually, I didn't show "wicked Wanda" in the article! Bummer. But the 20 TAC rifle looks very similar.....
And BTW, it's a hot 22/250 you're speaking about!

Well crap! I missed that article somewhere... Nope, I was actually using published Hodgdon data for the velocity difference. My go to 22-250 load was a 40grn HP @ 4230fps.... sure makes for a messy close range coyote!
"Wicked Wanda!" That's one of the better names for a rifle I've ever heard What did you name the 20TAC?

Re: 223ai

My .223 AI's get "close" to 22-250's but no cigar. I can load up 28.5 gr's of XBR in LC brass w/ Rem 7.5's all behind a 50gr SBK for 3750. Its on the hot side so I choose to run 28.0 grs for 3675 fps. Hornady's superperfomance 22-250 w/50gr v-max is stated at 4000 fps while their standard load is 3800 fps.

I don't run a 20 TAC, but do a 20 Prac for ease of use and $$. I run the 32gr Z-max's right at 4000 fps. I have been thinking about building up a .17/233 practical on AR platform but am afraid of how dirty she will get.

Woodnut - I am a little surprised that you don't have feeding problems with an AR based .223 AI since the shoulder is so sharp. I have talked with a few well know AR builders that just won't go down that route because of that issue.

Strombeckj, Sorry I took so long posting this. My builder is Lee Mosher of Insight Shooting systems in Colo. I don't have ANY feeding issues with the A.I. Lee is a superb builder and I highly recommend him!
