    Rebarrel from 223 to 204

    seems like about 60 yard advantage with the 204 for wind and elevation approx at 500 with your charts above. just checked my phone/ strelock and 53v max at 3500 fps is approx 37.2 " drop at 500 y with 100 y zero. so approx 5.2 inch drop advantage with 204 at 500. and 1.1 inch wind advantage with 204 at 500. if the 223 is zeroed at 200y drop is about 33.35 " compared too the 204 32" so if 223 is zeroed at 200 and 204 zeroed at 100 there is 1 inch in it at 500 y for both wind and elevation. i know the 53 v max BC is not honest at longer ranges as the bullet is slowing. BC is lower. in theory if one is zeroed at 100 and the other zeroed at 200 1-2 inch at 500 y is very very small. my only question is what is the real BC of the 39g blitz at 500y not what is advertised but the real BC out to 500y? As I think the 53v max is about 0.27/8 ish at longer range. theory is one thing, actual down range performance BC is another, and it would be interesting to know what real BC is for 39 blitz at 500y

    Rebarrel from 223 to 204

    i've just brought a LW barrel blank in .224. its about 25.6" I was going to cut it down too 22 " but after reading this thread I might leave it at 25. I want to try the 40's out (mostly shot the 50gers before), hopefully too 3800 if i get lucky. the .224 nosler 40 g look interesting. not the BC of the .204 40g ers but close ish @ .221 i believe. if shooting the 223 with 53vmax at 3500 with a .27-.29 bc then there really is not much in it. I guess the 204 might give a slight advantage at longer ranges with 40 g bullets. not so much with the above another point of view is do you really want your bullets holding there energy for a long way? I shoot an fac airgun with light pellets into trees. I would prefer it run out of energy past 100 yards fast for improved safety less worry. maybe its different with centre fire as a backstop is a backstop no matter what distance

    it seems to me after reading this long long long thread that barrel length has made the difference. not so much the cal. I guess the extra 5 inchs have made all the difference.
