    204 Ruger

    I'm getting just under 3,800fps with N530 so you should easily achieve that with 32gr Blitz. If you're going for a rebarrel as stated above, get a tighter twist for the 39gr Blitz and go for 25" 👍🏻

    Nice job. That's some distance, too.

    Strange! Shot them in my pals Howa Varmint at the weekend and it shot 1/4" in his, too.

    204 Ruger

    Who else shoots the 204 Ruger? I have one. A CZ527 Varmint. Love the rifle. Shoots really well with 39gr Blitz. Amazing on foxes and corvids. Had some really long shots on crows and rabbits. Must be the perfect varmint calibre.

    replicating the 22 hornet with .223

    I reckon foxes out to 200 yards and rabbits out to 300+ in decent weather if you can get a good load developed and you don't mind dialing. Great little vermin basher with 40gr V-Max. I'm getting just over 3,000fps with mine using 12.6gr Lil Gun.

    CZ 527 Bolt handle

    I ground down the bolt handle on my CZ527 in 22H to provide better clearance. Casey cold blue afterwards and it looks great.

    Well done, Malcolm. Top job! Sounds like you've got a great setup there. 26" barrel sounds just about perfect to me. I'm running a 25" barrel in the CZ527 204. Love the look of that rifle though, Malcolm. I bet it's an absolute tack driver and should spit out 39gr Blitzkings at a good speed. It's left me wondering what magic could be done to my CZ. Not sure they use them much for custom work, though? Be nice to get the action trued up, trigger polished, custom barrel and bedded into an adjustable stock.

    Great calibre. How long is the barrel, if you don't mind me asking?

    I haven't tried the 32gr Blitzkings to be fair. As soon as I git the rifle I knew the 39gr Blitz were the way to go. Great BC and the 25" barrel handles them really well. Powder wise, I'm using 25.6 gr of Vhit N530. Max recommended charge is 26gr, but mine groups really well at 25.6.

    204

    Well, I have a 223 that has been sat in the gun safe since my CZ527 204 Varmint arrived 18 months ago. Zipping 39gr Blitzkings at 3,800fps. I drop crows out to 400 yards on a regular basis, the furthest so far being 580 yards. Fast, explosive, great BC and whallops foxes, too. I chest shot a fox at 230 yards a few months back and it reacted like it'd been hit with a lightning bolt!

    Tested some more 22 subs

    The old 40gr Eley Subs stack on top of each other in my CZ452. Luckily, I bought a brick a while ago that should last me. I picked up a brick of old Winchester 40gr subs yesterday, too. Thought I'd give them a try out of curiosity. https://photos.app.goo.gl/dmjQ2AmVjaGNxwQE6

    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 😲
