The 204 is among my favorites. I shoot it more than I shoot anything else. Flat trajectory, stellar accuracy & fairly cheap factory ammo. Interestingly enough, this is the only rifle I own that I don't reload for....
The factory ammo is that good, mine seems to prefer the 32grn HNDY loads. I would without question, buy another one.
I've killed coyotes from 30yds to over 250, results are always the same.
