    .204 factory ammunition

    I am waiting to collect a new CZ .204 with a 24" Varmint (heavy barrell) and 1 in 12 twist rate. I just wondered if anyone could recomend a factory load for it. I appreciate that all barrells are different but thought it would be good to start with something that others have found works. I am hoping to use a bullet of 30gn ish and thought there is no point reloading if i can find an accurate round of the shelf.
    Thanks Tim

    you already know the answer suck it and see what works in one barrel may not work in another ask the rfd if you can have 10 rounds of ammo from each suplier find what works and buy from that rfd he may not agree

    the price of off the shelf ammo for some is hard hitting. so many reload i know i do with all my centre fires.

    I have been told that a local shop here charges 28 per 20 x 204 rounds, now that for some is way over the top, ??

    I used to use 32gr Vmax in my 12 twist and they worked well and was paying 21 for 20 only last month, home loading now.

    I already load for my .243 but not sure if i want to give up the time for another calibre. the initial cost of dies etc is a bit off putting.
