    .204 39 grn sierra blitz king load

    Dear all,

    Well as soon as my FAC is returned I will be off to pick up my .204 Savage Model 16.

    Thus any suggestions for a good load to experiment with?

    Many thanks

    Started with Vit n133 and stuck with it as it works. This is a great round and will load well with most powders that suit the 223.

    Mine works well with a slightly slower powder - Reloder 10x in my cases. Great little round to play with.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    +1 Agree with this. Don't be afraid to come well back from the lands. Shooting the 39 gr bullets, the 3 people I helped reload for their 204's all ended up over 100 thou back from the lands and as an aside my 20 Tac (with custom LW barrels) is 222 thou back - all will shoot sub .25

    Been using rl10x for years,

    24.5 in the new 20 tac under the 39 gr bk,s.
    23.5 in the older 20 tac under a 40 gr v max.

    Cci primer in all and they shoot better than me,
