Many of our readers have requested a dedicated forum area for the 22s, 20s and micro-calibers. The .20 Tactical and .204 Ruger are getting very well-established, and a good number of our users shoot a .223 or 22-250.
Feel free to discuss any topic related to 22s and the micro-calibers, but please put tool/gear questions in the Gear Section and general gunsmithing discussions should be placed there. But here is a forum where you can discuss .22- and .20-caliber loads, bullets, brass and wildcatting.

I'm another shooter that will add his name to that growing list. I just went and picked up my brand new Kimber Pro Varmint in .204 Ruger.
I do intend to be shooting factory ammo (just to build up a supply of brass) and to see what projectiles it likes.
I see that Nosler are making 32gr Ballistic Tip Varmint projectiles as well as 40gr. Thats great news, since i'll be reloading for it in the not too distant future. I was using the 70gr Ballistic Tip varmints in my .243 with great success.

and i think you will see people shooting more with small calibers because of the cost.

Cost aside, .223 Remington fare is a potent nich'e regarding thrice a week shooting. Since I shoot a hundred rounds plus per week, no, I don't find this a cheap hobby, nor do I find CONSTANT primer shortages a PLUS. What happens when I totally run out of primers? I can purchase the best of brass and the finest of powder, along with the cream of bullets, yet I cannot fire anything without decent primers. I'm a dedicated handloader and target shooter approaching 10x quality accuracy, yet primers are impossible to replenish currently. What Gives? cliffy
