varmint build looking for help

I am putting together a 20 Vartarg on a stevens 200 short action and having trouble coming up with some important pieces for the build. Namely a 20 vartarg go gauge and a 3 screw savage trigger, anyone have a lead on either of these items? I know I can throw a rifle basix in and have an excellent trigger but I have a 223 with a well adjusted 3 screw with a .039 spring wire that I am very happy with and would like to replicate that trigger.

    Man good luck. Pacific Tool and Gague would be the only suggestin I could gome up with for the go/no go guages. As for the trigger try Bob's Gun Parts.

    not familiar with 20 vartag

    appears to be 221 Rem Fireball necked down

    as such, I'd think you could use 221 Rem Fireball go/no-go gauges

    these are available here among other places...

    but, do your homework and don't take my word for it

    good luck!

    Vartarg shoulder angle is blown out so that will not work, the best I have come up with so far is Midway USA which is out of stock supposedly until 7/9

    makes sense

    even so, it may be best given that it's a wildcat, to do as Wildrose suggested and get the reamer mfg to make one
