Hey Military Rifle Guy, the OP wanted info about the 204 and here we are discussing the .224. This arguement is pointless and it is clear you don't like the .204. That is fine. There are many of us who do like it. It will not do everything, it is however, whether you like it or not, a very good varmint HUNTER that does the job within its limitations. In bone stock configuration this small bore offers a great deal of accuracy, excellent over the counter Hornady ammo, and reloading is simple and pretty cheap.
For those of us who actually have the rifle and shot it back to back with others all have a common like for the cartridge. That does not mean that we would take this rifle to punch paper at 1000 yards, it is a varmint hunting rifle with hunting bullets that are being discussed. You have an excellent point about LR target shooting. This is not a LR target rifle.
