Re: RUGER 204 STORY

I saw the 40 grain NOslers being shot on the range last week. They shot well and have a bearing surface length inbetween the vmax and he blitzking. Should prove interesting. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: RUGER 204 STORY

So.. GG we concur..

A .204 cal rifle with high velocity beats the 224s,
And the 6BR with light bullets beats all the .224 cals,

Is there acctually any god 224 calibers left out there?
The 223 is OK, because of cheap ammo,
the 22-250 it not interesting anymore, the 220 Swift is not interesting.. you might as well get a 6BR and be done with it..

The swift or 22-250 can compete with the .204 with a 60+grain bullet, but then you might as well just get a 6BR because it uses 20 grains less powder.

The high velocity commercial .224 seems dead to me..

Re: RUGER 204 STORY

Could I rebarrel my Ruger Target chambered currently for a .220 Swift, down the road, I like the looks of the 6 BR. GG seems to love this caliber and I'm thinking with a 105g VLD, it will be a 1000 yard rifle while only burning 30g of powder. Thats almost hard to believe, but hey it is what it is. I know its a short fat sucker so the OAL would probly work, just wondering if its possible?

Re: RUGER 204 STORY

Rem: yes you can. But some magazines dont feed the small 6BR cartridge well, so you might get a single shot rifle.

The 6br will shoot 55 grain BT at 3800fps, and 105 A-max at 2950 fps... Get a 1-8 twist barrel, and you can shoot every bullet weight there is.

The swift with a 75 grain A-max is a 1000 yard contender, but I would rater build a 223AI ( wich Im going to build after my 30-06) it uses 31 grains of powder and gets 3100 fps. Thats good enough for 1000 yards. 40grain BT at 4000 fps as well..

Re: RUGER 204 STORY

How fast could you say, push a 75g amax from a .220 swift, or even a 220 swift improved?? I want a 1000 yard cartridge that is easy on powder, and cheap to shoot. I like the idea of a swift shooting 75g bullets, but that 6BR is sure getting my attention as well. The 6BR will still do it burning probly 15g less powder as well. Simply amazing!!
