    20 Tactical reamer

    Does anyone have one? Or know someone who does? I should never have sold the 20 Tactical that I had... Now I want another one!

    Thought I'd ask on here before buying a reamer. Cheers

    Have your tried Gunworks? I think Robbie has one, though I might be getting mixed up with the 20 Practical. Worth an ask.

    I'll give him a ring, I think he has a 20 Practical. I have Tactical dies already so that's why I'm set on a Tactical

    Tactical is an improved case vs Practical being straight neck down of 223. Without checking, I think Tac is 30 something degree shoulder vs 20 something for Prac

    Used to be factory made Lapua 20 Tac brass available which is why I chose it originally. Now I'd neck down 223 Lapua brass and fireform. Fireforming loads just as accurate as formed brass

    Yep he does. I had to neck turn my brass using his reamer. From memory it has a 0.231 neck, ideally 0.232 or 0.233 would be good for Lapua 223 brass necked down.

    If anyone wants them (and it is ok to post on this page); I've got a set of Redding dies for a 20 Tactical that are pretty much as new - $75.00 including postage.
    PM me if keen;

    Thanks for the reminder mate! Hopefully my new one will be as good, not going to look as nice as your one though...
