Re: 204 ruger or 22-250
S243 , If you are new to Pdogging and on a tight Budget , I'm saying neither . I would suggest a 223 AR or Bolt ....whatever you feel comfortable with . Much cheaper Brass , way wider selection of Brass and Bullets . If you have deep pockets , I would go with an Accurized 20 Cal AR , and just buy some spare Barrels as I needed them. Most Pdog shooting I've seen is load and shoot as fast as you can , while they are out . A 22-250 will get so hot you will burn your hand on it unless you go to one of the Barrel Cooling Systems , or have multiple Rifles to shoot . I have no experience with rapid fire heating in the 20s .....yet ! 40 Grain Bullets in a 223 are good out to about 450 Yards unless its very windy and then I would want a very heavy Bullet in a Slow Twist ( big Case ) 22 , or 6mm , or 6.5 , and I would take my time shooting . Once you get experience with a 223 , you will see which way you want to go for your next Rifle . Once you Pdog it , there's no going back , you will be hooked !
