    204

    Hi all.

    Which rifle out of the two listed here would you buy for accrete shooting in a 204R out too 250yrds, a Remington 700 sps 24inch standard barrel or a Howa varmint 24 inch barrel and why.

    the one that fits you or matches your handbag/shoes.

    won't make any difference as they will both be capable of out shooting the shooter.
    I personally dont like Remingtons but that is just me

    Howa is better build quality (ive got a rem) as for accurate shooting out to 250m both rifles are more than capable of that

    Remington every day of the week.

    Why only the two choises mate?

    Howa or even Savage. Got to see a Savage 204 shoot some 1/8" groups at 100M the other night. The Trading Post has one with a 26" tube and tactical bolt that I'd like to grab; then rechamber it for 20 Tactical or 20 Practical and still have 25" of tube for blasting prairiedogs at 400M! ~Muir

    There is a Howa varmint .204 on guntrader built by Mike Norris with a Bell and Carlson stock, timney trigger and a few other mods.

    I reckon about 1400 worth of rifle for 900

    Nice rifle seams a little high though. As its still only a factory barrel at the end of the day. Just been recrowned and put into new stock. You can buy barreled actions from howa and put into a stock of your own for less then that.

    Muir,
    Why would you re-barrel a .204 to a Tac or Prac are they that much better?

    I think so. Ballistically, they are about the same; not a spit's worth of difference, but being able to make cases from cheap and plentiful .223 brass is a huge plus. (don't you think so as well??) ~Muir
