Re: RUGER 204 STORY

I have noticed an awful lot of people having prob's with the 223 and 243 wssm. A lot of them sent back to win with chambering issues.

Never had any trouble with chamber issues thus far!

Re: RUGER 204 STORY

I have shipped back 6-8 myself in win 70 in 243wssm, chamber acted like it was egged. A few other guys had problems with them but i never got a full explanation.

The guys i know that got guns and haven't had any problems with them seem to really like them. They definantly add some speed.

take it easy

Re: RUGER 204 STORY

No GG, never want to argue, but it is always good to have coversation. I think the ballistic table you are referring to is using a 32grn bullet. I will be using a 55grn bullet with a velocity of around 3800 fps to 4000 fps, I think I would rather have a 55 grn bullet at those velocities than a 32grn bullet. If the wind picks up, the 32grn bullet is gonig to be pushed all over the place. I would have to agree with about the reloading factors, less powder, better on brass, barrel, just to name a few. I guess what I was trying to say is there is more factory ammo out there for the 223, 22-250 and 204, so those three rounds would be a better choice for the person who does not reload. Anyway, they are both great calibers. How is the MOAG shooting, I should be receiving my big rifle soon. And by the way, did you guys start selling your shooting platform (Shooting Table). I could have sworn I saw you guys in Varmint Hunting Magazine. Thanks, Wildcat.

P.S. Just say no to Bird shot. I can't wait to see how far the Liberals take this one. I am really starting to get sick of all this crap!!! I have a shirt and on the front of it sis (ANYONE BUT HILLARY IN 08). I love to wear this shirt in the gym, you would not believe the hate looks I get from all the Liberals that workout in the gym. Remember, I live in California. Better yet, I wore this shirt while I was in Hawaii, I am suprised I am still alive. I hope the Republicans have a good Presidential Candidate for 2008. Sorry, I guess I got of on political tangent.

Re: RUGER 204 STORY

Lerch, you are exactly right on this one. My friend had a 223 WSSM and he loved the velocities he was getting, but the accuracy was not good. He started to have other problems too, he sold it and went back to his 22-250.

Re: RUGER 204 STORY

I just bought a winny 223WSSM Stealth and two of my buddies bought the 243WSSM stealth.
They all shoot great groups,had some ejection and trigger pull issues but for less than $100.00 our smith got that taken care of.
For a factory rifle we are very pleased with them.
As with anything mass produced you take a chance, maybe we got lucky.
As soon as it warms up(-15 this morning)I'll be out in my field testing my new toy,then a yote killin' I will go!

By the way,this is a great site for info since I'm new to long range hunting,I'm sure you'll be hearing more from me.
Thanks again for this informative site.

Guys, don't overlook 222 Remington Magnum, the 204 parent case. Loaded with 40 grain V-Max and H-335 at around 3600 fps my stock 40XB with 22" barrel had been dispatching ground squirrels at 500 plus yards with regularity.
