Re: to fifty driver

Re: to fifty driver

Condor,

Everything mentioned will work perfectly well. I would pick the 204 or 22 caliber rounds over the 17 but mainly for personal reasons.

If your looking to itch a wildcat bug, could I recommend the 223 Ack Imp. It is a great round. Easy to load for, when set up properly it is very accurate with factory 223 Rem ammo and when loaded properly will give factory loaded 22-250 ammo a run for its money performance wise.

They are simply a joy to shoot and for the game and range you are asking about, one would be hard pressed to find a better round.

FOr a factory round, the 204 or 223 would be my personal choice for this game at these ranges.

GOod Shooting!!

Re: to fifty driver

If the 17 Rem is pretty common over there that's the way to go- ammo and reloading components will be readily available. I use a 17 Rem over here for coyotes and have taken several with 400-500 yard one shot kills.
Form what I have seen the 204 hasn't lived up to all the hype Ruger claimed...coming from first hand knowledge of over 10,000 rounds down two 204s....
