Hey fellow predator hunters, I am looking to buy a new rifle cartridge for shooting furbearers and I have been contemplating the .204 ruger. Reloading the ammunition will be a future prospect so for now it's just shelf ammo for me. I have a .243 and a 17 HMR that I take now and I can only hit animals with the hmr under 100 or 90 yards. But the middle ground, 100-200 yards, i cant take anything with the 17 or 243 cuz the 17 doesnt have the snort for it, and the 243 blows them up really bad if its under the 200 yard mark. so what are your thoughts on the 204 cartridge as a predator gun for something in the middle of the two i have now so that i only have to take one gun. Good or bad, I want to hear your thoughts. Thank fellas!
