Thinking about picking one up if I can find the right one. Looks like a fun, flat shooting little cartridge for varmints & targets.

Id like to have one for pigs and varmints

My favorite coyote gun.

Got a VTR a few years ago off here and have massacred a pile of totes with it.

Great round, but I stay away from the V-max in this small of a caliber.

HSM with 32 grain Berger’s is a mean lil round.

Had a Remington 700 I shot for a while and then traded it off, in the process of having another one built on an old 722 action.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

We have one , nice shooting little rifle and ammo is available up here for it. We reload for it though.
Those Vmax rounds will tear up a coyote hide though.

I have a stainless Ruger in 204 with a zeiss scope on it. We have owned it probably ten years and and have never shot it. Still has the tags on it. I keep thinking someday I will have a need for it but haven’t yet.

Have one in a howa and love it. Shot a few deer (neck and head shots} great on varmints but it does blow stuff up.

Had a Savage years ago. Got rid of it because ammo was too expensive even back then. Kept the Marlin 17 HMR though.

Mine is a Ruger Hawkeye. I've lost count of the coyotes, bobcats, foxes, neck-shot turkeys, and corn stealing squirrels it has done in over the years. Basically, just point and shoot. Too light for deer or hogs, IMO.

Me and ol' RUGER, 70 years and still shooting.
