I just got back from my semi annual prairie dog hunt and once again the gears are turning. I use a heavy barreled AR in 223. I have no complaints but I may be getting to the point where I might be thinking about a new barrel. I really don’t take shots past 350 yards and with the scarcity of 223 right now I’m thinking about the 204. I can remember back when Newtown occurred you could still find 204. While you can’t find almost anything right now but 204 just has never been in demand the way 223 is. Is it worth the consideration? This is for a dedicated prairie dog gun.
