    Springtime Corvids - 204 Ruger

    You bet. Speed certainly kills!

    Springtime Corvids - 204 Ruger

    Yeah, the 204 doesn't half make a mess. Arranged those magpies sympathetically. One of them was chopped clean in half at 220 yards 😲

    Fantastic bullet!

    It's great fun. Shot two crows at 340 yards last week. Best so far has been a Rook at 505 yards 👍🏻

    Nice setup!

    Springtime Corvids - 204 Ruger

    39gr blitz @ 3,720fps. Lambing season and nesting time. Thought I'd have a bash at the corvids. Ended up with three magpies and one crow. Range from 177 - 220 yards. 10mph crosswind. All shot one after the other inside 20 mins. Awesome vermin basher, is the 204! https://photos.app.goo.gl/StUT7d4kkH2Br9GF9
  7. GRS Berzerk stock for Tikka T3. Great condition. I'd post pics, but it looks brand new to me so not much point. £250 + postage. Also advertised elsewhere.

    Sounds like a good varmint calibre that can take down the ocassional fox as and when 😎

    Presumably no problems dropping the fox, then?

    Lovely looking rifle. Quite like the 17 rem and fireball. Great little vermin bashers. Do like the 204, though.

    Nice one. They're shifting! Decent BC on those 25gr V-Max. If you can develop a good load they'll be great for long range rabbit/corvid control!

    Out to 200 yards you'd be looking at 17HMR or one of the Hornets. Noise is about the same, but nowhere near as quiet at a 22LR using subsonic ammo. That's virtually silent. I have shot rabbits with the 22LR out to 180 yards, but that's extreme and not something I've done since. Sensible to keep the range of the 22LR down to sub 120 yards. 22LR does have a loopy trajectory, so can be difficult at night when judging distances is difficult. I'd favour the HMR or Hornets for that.

    Three questions: 1. What range are you talking? 2. What kind of volume of rabbits are you shooting? 3. Day time or night time? My advice: - High volume day time rabbits: 22LR. I'd go for CZ452 or 455 - High volume night time rabbits: 17HMR. Same rifle as above - Low volume, longer range: 22 Hornet CZ527. Good out to 300 yards for rabbits. Also option for ocassional fox, sub 200 yards. Preferably homeloaded ammo with 40gr V-Max.
