Re: .204

Nice group Brent, looks like you have it dialed in. The 204 is so much fun to shoot. Many people underestimate this round. Now you may want to check out the 20 VarTarg. For the 300 to 400 yard sage rats and further for prairie dogs it is even more fun. Not as much red mist effect at longer ranges but still quick kills. Even less recoil, more efficient round and accurate. It is the 221 Fireball necked down to 20 caliber. Use the same bullets as the 204.

I threw this together real quick. Fun little rifle. I will edit the main vid later where I shoot the steel and it shows the wind affect on the bullet.

The other 20s you mention are cool too. We use the 204 for yotes and wolves too. I shot a deer with it a couple years ago. 200 yards. Dropped in its tracks.

Only trouble is: I have two perfectly good .221 Fireballs and can't bring myself to turn them into 20VTs. (Two .204s, also.)

Two 21 Fireballs, oh man, you are 70% there! Shoot a 20 VT and then you will be ordering a new barrel! You already have the brass and the bullets. I love spending other peoples money, it is so much fun!!! I should be the president! Sorry I could not help myself

I am going to have to look up the stuff you guys are talking about. Spent some time in the hills yesterday goofing off.
