    hey guys im new here, G'day from down under.

    Im a very new 204 owner (T/C venture 22 inch sporter 1-10" twist)

    I have found that this rifle is very accurate with Fiocchi 40 grain ammo, but there is a little problem, sometimes the brass has slightly raised primers. My only concern is the ammo is too hot and or dangerous.

    Anyone else had a similar experience or chronied the ammo?

    Thanks!

    NO ISSUES WITH THE 1000RDS I SHOT OF IT SO FAR THIS SPRING ON SAGE RATS AND PRAIRE DOGS FOR THE BRASS. WAS CHEAPER TO BUY IT AS LOADED AMMO AND SHOOT IT THAN BUY RAW BRASS AND LOAD IT THE FIRST TIME. ONLY SHOT IT IN 2 DIFFERENT RIFLES BUT BOTH WERE SUB 0.5 MOA
    WORKED THE BRASS LAST WEEK AND REALLY LIKE IT. HAVE ALWAYS USED HORNADY, WINCHESTER OR NORMA BUT THIS SEEMS TO BE VERY GOOD.
    ALL MY PRIMERS WERE REALLY FLAT. DID NOTICE THESE PRIMERS ARE HARD JUST LIKE THEIR SRPs THAT I USED TO RELOAD WHEN PRIMERS WERE HARD TO FIND ABOUT 10 YR AGO. I ANNELED THIS BRASS AND TURNED OUT BETTER THAN ANY SMALL CALIBER I'VE DONE MUCH LIKE MILITARY 5.56
