Re: 500 yard rig

My friend who shot those Hornady SuperFormance Match bullets has that Remington with the triangle barrel and the built in muzzle brake. Wouldn't have thought it would be so accurate; but the combo of the two worked great.

i took both on a p.d. hunt last year. i had about 500 rounds of 223/40gr. v max.
had about 300 rounds for my 22/250 ai. (had it rechambered) loaded w/69gr smks.
all i can say is b.c. my ass. the wind had those 40s all over the place.
great to about 200 yds.
after about 2 hours the first day i determined the 223 w/ 40s innafective on long shots. out came the 22/250 ai and that performed well to about 500 yds.
after that get a 6mm or bigger.
next trip will have 50s in the 223 and 69s in the 22/250ai.
the 3rd gun will be a 6/284 for over 500 yds.

as for the 204, it cant do anything a 223 wont do better.

Re: 500 yard rig

I would say if your money is tight so you are looking for a cheap factory rifle get a 220 swift 1-14 twist. My longest shot on rock chucks was 423yd on a baby one in a slight wind with 55gn vmax. I never really tryed to stretch it further because at the time it was far for me. Shot many at 300 or so. This is just a great round to shoot. I have mine getting rebarreled to a 220 swift ai 1-8" twist so I can reach even farther in the wind.
Hope this helps
