This rifle was one of many that I built back in 2009- 2010 to shoot squeeks on Alfalfa fields in northeastern California. They are about the size of a Red Bull energy drink can when standing up and we shot them by the hundreds on each trip. It was originally built using the Remingtion Varmint SPS in .204. I cut the barrel and rechambered it in 20 Vartarg and mounted the setup in the Bell and Carlson stock along with the excellent Leupold scope. The 20 Vartarg case is 221 Fireball that has been necked down to 20 caliber. With this setup you can push the 32 grain Blitzking at 3800 fps using just 18 grains of powder. This is one of the most accurate varmints rounds available as it easily shoots sub 1/2 MOA. We regularly shot these critters at 300 yards by lasering the range and dialing the scope for the yardage. We have achieved 500-yard kills with this setup. 200 yard shots are a walk in the park. As you see in the picture, we shot off a bench mounted to our 4 wheelers. This rifle weighs in at 12.2 pounds so is best shot on a bench. There is no more recoil than a 22 long rife so you see what you shoot in the scope. I put over 4000 rounds through the original cut down factory barrel before the still tiny groups started to shift when the rifle got a little dirty. I replaced the factory barrel with the high end Lilja bull, which is pictured in the add. This rifle has about 400 rounds through it and I expect it will easily exceed the 4000 rounds the factory barrel produced with this high end Lilja. After dozens of reloads I have yet to wear out the original brass I started with. As the picture shows ballistic data is included to get you started dialing and shooting quickly. Obviously, you must be a reloader to shoot this rifle. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions. I have loaded ammo and many components available as well which I will sell separately depending on what you need. This is a special rifle so do your research and give me a call anytime if you have questions.
