    Pixie yes. Buy a .20 cal barrel (Walter) and have it profield. Boondock knows how and Warric does it. You can send them a message and they will reply, some very nice guys, they will help you where they can.

    Yes, BAM .20 can be done. and it feels like a brand new gun in the field. check my old post for more info.

    i did many tests between .177 and .20 in speed, accurcy, damage, power, range... i have been hunted side by side with 23fpe .177 stock bam many times. the .20 does make huge diffence in killing rate and killing range.

    in ballistic, a .20 is much more like a .22 than a .177. after I took many quarry with .20. i m total convinced and i will never go back to hunt with .177 again.

    Hi Pixie,
    The bug has bitten! If you can get a barrel from Boondock and find a BAM (I only have access to one more BAM50 at the moment), then I can help you. I will PM you all the costs and what velocity ranges/ tunes I can offer.
    Busy with 4 .20cal conversions at the moment.
    Cheers

    Having seen what the BAM B-50 conversion to .20 can do, I can assure you you will not be disappointed with the results...... This opens up a new way of hunting accuracy and power wise at a reasonable price for the conversion.... The Walther barrel is accurate up to and exceeding 100m and the knock-down power is there....!!!!
    Enjoy the project.....
