Well I am a happy chappy as now got my .204 its had a bit of a trial run with some factory 32 grns and appears to shoot well.
So started to reload some new rounds last night. Have borrowed some Redding dies so thats ok. Using 39 grn Blitz kings and reloader 10x
Firstly no reloading data on Alliants web site for .204.
Have run varrious loads for Rel 10x and BL-C2 through quick load and they are much lower than stuff on web also lower than on published reloading data
First issue my powder funnel is too big
What do I need to buy and from where?
Case trimmer, I use the standard Lee one for my .243/.223 but they dont appear to make one for .204 ruger. Paddy off here is going to machine down a 22 250 one but any other suggestions?
COAL measured it and as previuosly noted vv long throat in fact bullet almost falling out of case when touching lands. Lots of conflicting advice on net as to length. Looks like my Savage mag will take up to 2.475 if need be. Have started off at 2.300. This seems to be a good length as bullet fully supported in neck of case.
Anything else i should be aware of ?
