Re: rifles for pd shooting
You can shot PD's with about anything under the sun, but I will throw in my 2 cents. your 204 is optimal, your 17 HMR will get the job done depending on the distance. ( the PD's I shoot have a avg. distance of 200+ yrads after the first CRACK" of a rifle. I would consider a .17 Fireball or .17 Rem, .223 is another good choice. the 22-250 is a very fine caliber, but on a PD gun I would install a break, heck even on a .223 I would, and do. For me shooting PD's without seeing the HIT reduces the FUN factor. If your going to start reloading consider a slow twist 20 so you can shoot the 39gr+.
