does you have any good ideas for what kind of caliber i can use on foxes, crows, goose and other small animal up to 2-300yrd. is the 204 ruger or 17rem good kalibers for that
i have bougth a 308 now. but need a varmint caliber also.
a wildcat would be fun.
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.

i am from norway and i know people here is using the 17rem and the 204 ruger, but the 22-250 burn powder and barrels or? the 223 acley improved i dont think we have barrels for?
the only thing i care about are that the rifle should shoot 1 tol 1 1/2 moa at 250-300yrd [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
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....
