Re: Savage Sporter 23B .25/20
I have a Savage 23B in 25-20 I bought 20 years ago, it had a Field scope mount and though the bore was good, it had pitting in the chamber. Had it reamed out to a 'improved' 25-20 and it shoots very well!. 60gn at 2400fps, 75gn at 2100 and 87 at 2000fps. I usually resize new 32-20 cases as they are cheaper and easier to get? It has accounted for numerous vermin, plus feral goats, pigs, foxes and lots of rabbits. I have no mag so can load the projies out to 'just' off the rifling, accuracy is excellent and the first shot usually goes right where it is aimed!.
