    204 Ruger Brass

    OK lads, what are the options for brass for the 204 Ruger?

    Does anyone have any decent quallity brass excess to requirements?

    Any quirks I need to know before starting to reload for said beast?

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

    I can trade my left nut for some from the States without much bother, though I would rather not. Perfectly happy to buy some once fired Sako or Norma if such exists.

    Might be easiest to buy a 100 rounds of factory ammo and go from there...

    When I got my first 204 I used Winchester brass exclusively .

    Before I got the second 204 I happened upon some used brass as well as regular dies and neck dies for a very nice price . Think the guy sold me about 400 pieces of brass . Half was Hornady and then about a 100 of Winchester and Remington . So I am set for a good long while .

    Sako dont make 204 brass. Nosler custom and norma would be the best if you can find it.
    I use winchester myself, its supposed to be better than hornady and remington.
    I have loaded some of it 8 times now and its holding up well.

    Easier to form from 222 mag brass. I had 40 unfired sako 222 mag brass and chucked it.

    A friend of mine just sold a 204 had had a couple of un opened 100 bags of norma. I could see if he has them still

    Never had a problem getting brass for mine, I have Nosler and Winchester. The Nosler brass is excellent.
