    Something in the mid 40g range with a G1 BC of over .3 would be great.

    For those that might still be looking for some 20 cal Berger 55 gr bullets, Graf and Sons is still showing they have them in stock. 7315br

    Just checked Grafs after finding that Powder Valley was out of the 55s - no joy at Grafs either. Dadburned internet - word of the 55's demise spread so fast that they were mostly gone by the time I found out about it. Only reason I was shooting them was the chance finding of a couple of 1-9tw 20 cal Bartlein bbls on their inventory list a few years back. Spun one of them up as a 20 Tactical for a Howa Mini, and it shoots them quite well. But it also shoots 32, 39, & 40gr bullets just as well. Have a few hundred of the 55s - will keep them for 'special' purpose loads I guess.

    Sorry it didn't work out flatlander. I ordered some last Friday and they still had them then. The Blackhole 55 gr 20 cal rebated boat tail tipped is a very good bullet also. Just as accurate as the Bergers in my rifles to 500 yds. Haven't shot them past that distance, but have shot the Bergers all the way past a 1000 yds. 7315br
