Re: 35 grain 22-250 versus the 204 ruger
You will definitely have more barrel wear with the lighter bullets. Grain for grain, the 204 will definitely out shoot the 22-250. If you look at the ballistic coefficients of the 39grn Sierra Blitzking versus the 35grn Win bulletk, the Blitzking is going to win. Your speed will be a little less, but your barrel wear would be better in the 204.
