I was pondering the idea of picking up a bolt action varmint gun chambered in .204 Ruger. I think the caliber is ****-hot and persuading yourself into buying another rifle is never a bad thing.
Anyone care to guess at barrel life shooting 40gr's around 3600fps?
Max range on where the 204's energy becomes sub-standard for clean Coyote kills?
Twist rate? I've seen from 1/12 to 1/9.
What's your current rifle or any suggestions one them?
I've been looking at the Savage Varmint line. Either the:
Model 12 Long Range Precisison Varminter (Repeater)
Savage Arms Model 12 Long Range Precisison Varminter (Repeater)
12 Series Varmint Model 12 BTCSS
Savage Arms Model 12 BTCSS
Savage 12 Varminter Low Profile
Savage Arms Model 12 Varminter Low Profile
Probably going to go with the low profile since it's quite a bit cheaper and this rifle will only come out a few times a year to play....although I do like the thumbhole stock on the 2nd model I listed.
