    Ruger .204

    I am after a sako .204 or cz .204 preferably with a varmint profile barrel and set trigger
    Probably have to go new but never know what's out there.
    Cheers Andy

    Hi Andy, I’ve got a ss Remington with an after market trigger and a night force bench rest scope!
    It’s not for sale but it shoots very well, neat little calibre, paid $700 for the rifle!! Better than a Tikka!!
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    @Maca49 I've got a laminate Tikka and a Laminate Howa varmint in 204 and they both shoot unbelievably well with factory ammo, better than any Remington I've ever seen...

    I will ask my mate but loves sakes and cz and asked me to source one of these two.
    He is looking at new or close to it.
    Cheers for posting Tommy!

    how to get a Remington or Tikka to shoots lights out

    Remington 700 . . . replace trigger, barrel, stock, blueprint action, get a bedding job . . do load development

    Tikka . . . replace factory trigger spring with a YoDave . .. do load development

    probably not true . . but it seems like it is after owning a couple of so so Remingtons
