I currently fire a tikka t3 in 223 rem. Its a great rifle its use is for shooting foxes (55 gn V max) under the lamp. I have read a great deal about the 204 ruger and it seems too good to be true. I have looked at all the ballistic programs and if I thought what they were saying was true I'd change over in the morning. I really need to talk to someone who uses a 204. These are my questions.
How flat does it shoot out to 300 yds (32 gn vmax)?
Will it (32 gn v max) beat the wind better than a 55gn .223 round out to 300 yds?
Will it (32 gn vmax) kill a fox at 300 yds if the animal is hit in the chest area?
I know thats alot of questions and that articles, reviews and ballistic programs will give some answers but I am only interested in fact based actual experience. I would appreciate any help that you could give me. Thanks
