    75 Sako Custom 20-222 in McMillan Edge Stock

    Custom lightweight carry varmint rifle. The 20-222 is the 222 version of the 223 practical where the shoulders remain in the same position and at the same angle and the reduced neck diameter to 20 cal simply extends further up the neck. Standard 222 neck bushing dies and Body dies are what I use for reloading, but a neck bushing FL sizing die would work as well.

    I am building another 20-222 but in a heavy weight chassis setup for more static varminting.

    Have been running this rifle with 32gr VMAX at around 3700fps and it typically shoots between 0.5-0.75" groups.

    Gives better than 223 varminting performance and is a lovely little rifle with he McMillan stock... Truflight fluted 20 cal barrel 12" twist. Less than 600 rounds through it. Miles of life left...

    Hard to know what price to put on it... but given the stock its got to be around 2K... 30mm rings included not scope or bipod... Some PMC brass and reloads are available as well..

    You wouldn’t be interested in a tikka 7mm08 and cash your way?
