Ruger .204

Anyone have any opinion on the .204? I won a Browning Medallion .204 this yr at a game dinner. Supposedly it's a great new load.

The .204 is a good little load, especially if you know and respect its limitations.

The Browning Medallion is certainly a pretty enough gun to be extremely happy to win, regardless of caliber. Wish I were that lucky!

Pretty hot little varmint round, you can load for it so thats what I would recomend doing. A varmint hunting buddy has one, nice, comfy recoil, acurate, think of it as maybe somethijng between a 22 hornet and a .223, I wouldn't hesitate to use it on yotes.

except the 204 can hit the range of 4200 fps. i load mine right at 4000 and it seems to do alright. haven't shot a dingo with it but i have hit some pdogs out at 600 yds and even at that range is still is pretty mean.
