The reason we went PPC was due the rifle was originally a 7.62x39 so same bolt face as the PPC. Barrel twist is a 1:10 finding Bergers here espicially 55's in 20 cal is hard.
Otherwise a great little cartridge dynamite on vermin over here. Ballistically compared to my 22-250 I would need to run 60gr's + at the same speed to match the 40gr's in 20 cal over extended distance.
The PPC cartridge is very efficient.
Shawn Carlock / Defensive Edge built my little "pea shooter" for me and it is a nice little rifle. The 55's were a pain in the neck to find but I'm good to go now. I went with .20 Beggs and Nosler brass.
Heres a pic of my load test target. I load test at 200 yards.
And here's a pic of the final 5 round, 200 yard target. The triangle is 3/4" (19mm-ish)
Last but not least here's the pea shooters big brother. It's a .338 Edge (Canyon Rifle package) and it shoots 1/4 moa groups. The .30-.30 Winchester in the pic is there to let the .338 know that it better shoot straight because it's replacement isn't far off
