I was at the range on Sunday shooting squirrels with my friend. There was a gentlemen shooting next to me, and he was shooting a custom 204 Ruger, with a 28" barrel and a Nightforce NXS 3.5x15x56mm scope. He was making hits on squirrels at 500 yards and it was killing them dead in their track at that range. Kills from 50 to 300 yards provided some pretty spectacular red mist shows.
It was awesome to watch this guy shoot that little bullet. He was using the 32grn V-Max with 30grns of VV-N133. He was pushing the 32grn V-Max at 4350fps, it was awesome.
I am impressed everytime I see the 204 in action.
