For the last 35 years whenever I've glanced at a clock and the time was exactly 2:43, I would have this warm, and fuzzy feeling come over me. Happened again just this afternoon.
I wonder if that shop was even trying to get 204? I’ll say the last 2 weeks I’ve probably been to around 20 stores that sell guns/ammo. Out of those I found one with 204 ammo, while I’d say half of them had 243. And probably a third of them had 22 250
I get the same feeling when I see 3:08. It’s my favorite caliber and don’t even own one now…. I hope to change that soon.For the last 35 years whenever I've glanced at a clock and the time was exactly 2:43, I would have this warm, and fuzzy feeling come over me. Happened again just this afternoon.
The last 4 shops I’ve stopped at the past few days have all had some 243 ammo. All in the 95-100 grain bullets. Think I’m just gonna have to reload to get something in the 70-80 weightNot sure about that. that’s just what the guy told me. I’d bought a .243 for my daughter for Christmas and was looking for ammo. I’ve found some .243 myself but not what i prefer to use, kinda a use what u can find kinda deal
DPMS fill the niche?I get the same feeling when I see 3:08. It’s my favorite caliber and don’t even own one now…. I hope to change that soon.
Probably not. I’ve got my heart on something with some beautiful wood.DPMS fill the niche?
204 is not harder hitting than 223. You would have to step way, way down to get 223 at that level. Faster? Sure . I’ve had a couple 204s and I found nothing useful.That's what I thought. 204 is a niche caliber not popular here in Kentucky. It is much faster and hard hitting that the popular 5.56 but Ammo was always scarce here.
I only bought one box in my life and i think i have had 6 rifles. Always loaded my own but now you can't find Sierra or Nosler bullets. A fella in Pennsylvania sent me 3 boxes of SBK 39g. and that's it. VMax are around but a Lot of the .204 don't shoot them well due to the forward ojive.
243 kills them deadI have killed probable 30- 40 deer with a 243 all I ever shot was rem corelocks 100 gr most were shoulder shot and none went more than 30 yrds!
If you keep it at respectable ranges you really don't need anything else.
You are Correct.204 is not harder hitting than 223. You would have to step way, way down to get 223 at that level. Faster? Sure . I’ve had a couple 204s and I found nothing useful.
I always wanted to go out to a dog town for some shooting but never have. I definitely see where a .204 has the advantage in that situation.You are Correct.
I like the .204 because it is so flat shooting. I have killed a lot of PDs with the 40g VMax. And.
You can See your Hits in the scope view. Also killed a lot with the .223 but the wind deflection is much worse.
I have only shot savage rifles for over 25 years.. by the time I get a recipe I have had everyone shooting a clover 🍀 or better..even 3006What savage? I’ve seen a ton of axis around but just hadn’t been crazy about them, was it a 10/110?
