Nothing, it's my personal choice but you have to admit the 204 Ruger has some pretty impressive ballistics.

Nice Mike. I plan on loading some lighter rounds for the 243 this year to experiment a little. I am currently loading 75gr vmax's for the windy days on the big fields. The 204 is great out to 300 with no wind, but the wind plays heck with it past that.

yea it gets them all at some point til they hit something \:\) the 243 has less drop than the 25-06 at 500yards when both shoot there lightest weight bullets & thats what i would shoot for varmits instead of buying a new calibur just for that purpose,now if i had $ to spend i would like to have 1 of every calibur,each 1 has a atribute that a diffrent cal dosent & finding it is alot of fun from what i have read,im not knocking the 204 or the 2506 but the 243 is hard to beat for a allpurpose calibur,i may read up un the 243wsm & see what the balistics look like just for fun,mike243
