First Dr. Dickel, then mr big, now statelineRUT and DA.

I think I`m ready to take the leap of faith in my buddies love of this round.

My dilemma, a short handling rifle with 22" barrel, to actually use as a stalking/calling rifle, or a heavier tubed, longer higher speed rig to see the splash factor.

We have several choices at work, LVSF in 204, one like mr bigs in 204, SPS Varmint in 204, XR100 in 204 (cool rifle) and a Stainless laminated in 204. The LVSF has a 22" tube, all others a 26". I have it between the LVSF for practicality, and the XR100 for the ultimate cool factor. Thes have solid bottom action and 40X trigger, vented thumbhole stock.

Forgot to say, I shot one in SPS Varmint a couple of days ago and it has really got me to thinking about getting one for target shooting fun and getting an ecaller for yote hunting, but I hate to spend money towards guns right now when I have loads of things to spend it on for my land.

Based on how well my SPS .308 Varmint shoots I'd buy one in .204 in a heartbeat. The .308 has VERY little recoil. A .204 should be nothing.

All I know is the XR100's are sweet looking rigs.

OK ,here's my plug. Have put about 100 rounds through my Savage FV and with handloads,I'm too the point where I will always have a 204 to play with ! I absolutely love shooting this round !

My present loads are consistently less than 1/2 inch MOA. Just my plug !
