    Howa & remington .204ruger a good combo?

    Evening gents, I'm in the midst of ordering a howa 24" heavy barreled rifle and picked up 100 Remington 32g premier accutip, just wondering if any of you fine chaps are using this combination and to what effect? I'm not going down the reloading route just yet. Although it's on the cards in the future. Accuracy is of course paramount ,so just after any real world advice on factory ammo for this rifle. Ps it's a 1:12 Twist. Cheers all, Danny.

    Hi Danny, I have a Tikka T3 super varmint and a remmy 700 LVSF both in .204. They both shoot very accurate with 32 and 40gr Hornady V Max. Never used the Remington accutip as they are always 5+ extra than the V Max . My mate has just purchased a Howa with a sporter stainless barrel, could not get it to group less that 4 to 5 inch at 100yrds using 40gr v max however using 32gr v max it was grouping at 1/2 inch. Have a look at this test with 32 and 40gr ammo. Cheers Tony
    (It's a bit long winded but a bit of an eye opener)
