mr big killed 2 several years ago like 250 plus yds with his 204

i have read on forums of guys double lunging them at 80 yds with 35 gn berger

if i had one i would pop a few with it but i limit my self to neck shot

I earholed a couple does with it also,,I killed 4 deer with the 204 with 32 gr Blitz King bullets at 4175 fps,,I could pick my shots and was more just to say I did,you have to pass a bunch of shots though,,

my CZ 527 Varmint has a 9 twist and I shoot the 65 Sierra Game King bullets on deer with 100% success,the Carbine has a 12 twist and I plan on doing tests with the Barnes 50-55 gr and the 60 Partition,,

Lade-

Fairly certain I'm at 3,300+ with the same bullet and H-4895. Maybe 25.5 gr? I'll check. Your Varget load seems slow with the 53's.

Good luck-

Judd
