Story:
So several years ago I bought this .204 Savage 110 for some reason that is beyond me lol. I put a Nikon scope on it and went out to shoot it in 50 MPH winds... needless to say I put it in the safe. Been kicking around selling it. It is a nice day today so I decided to dust it off. I only had a half a box of shells. I proceeded to try to dial it in at 100 yards and after getting close this is my last 4 shots with the bottom one being the first. I think I have a tack driver? I don’t need a .204 but damn!

You certainly re-found a great find!!!

I think .204 is about as good as it gets for varmints! They shoot faster and flatter than almost anything else out there in the little cartridges.

The one I shoot is actually a 20 Practical (223 case necked down to accept .204 bullets). Mine and the 204 perform like twin sisters.

I shoot a 40 grain BIB bullet at 3800 fps with 26 grains of 8208 in a necked down 223 Lapua case.

I/we just killed 6 coyotes with my rig this weekend (4 were my kills).

Sorry, TMI
