    Check out Home of 204Ruger.com and RugerHunting.com!, and look at the forums. There is a section for 204 loading, with many loads listed. I am burning Reloder-10x, around 24.8 gr (Sierra lists 25.1 as max), with a 39gr Sierra Blitzking, Federal 205M primers, Hornady brass. I neck size, and have an COL of 2.26". This is a consistent .1-.2 load with velocity around 3800 fps. Its hard to beat the BC of the 39gr Blitzking.

    Kingdad if you do an advanced search by "title" only and put whatever you're looking for in "quotes" you should find what you need.
