20 Practical Any Users?

This caliber has me very intriuged. Just wondering if there are any users of this caliber. If there is, what are your thoughts and opinions of it? How does it stack up to the .204 Ruger? I like its simplicity of necking down .223 casings and loading. Let me know.

here's mine on a Lawton 7000,20''1-12 lilja barrel, custom sleeve over sound moderator with a hand made laminate stock,as to the case forming one pass through a bushing die with a 230 bushing and you are good to go, the group below was shot with fire forming loads.you'll be able to match 204 ruger speeds with 2-3 grns less powder

I have a savage with a shilen on it chambered in 20 Practical and I love it. I am getting 3950fps out of the 24" barrel with RL 10X under the 39gr blitzking.
