    My pet load is 24.8 gr Reloder 10-X, Federal 205M primers, Hornady cases, and 39 gr Sierra blitzkings. I shoot this in a modified 700 SPS, and it will group in the .25" range, at close to 3800 FPS.

    My 204's are my # 1 go calibers in a P-dog field. Here are some of my pet loads. The 39 bk's are my favorite.

    35 bergers, 25.5 gr of RL-10X and 26.8 gr of benchmark
    40 bergers and 40 V-max, 24.5 gr RL-10X and 25.5 gr of H-4895
    39 sierra BK and 40 gr Nosler , 25 gr RL-10X and 27.5 gr of H-4895
    32 V-max and 32 gr nosler, 26 gr RL-10X and 27 gr H-322
    26 gr varmint grenade, 26.3 gr RL-10X and 23.3 gr H-4198
    45 gr hornady sp, 24.3 gr RL 10X

    All of these loads will generally print out 1/2" groups or better out of both of my savage 204's.
    These loads may not work in your gun so REMEMBER to start below these and work your way up at approx .2 to .3 gr at a time.
