.204 strikes again!!
« on: January 24, 2009, 02:44:34 PM »
The new VTR is treating me well. Switched to the 40 grain. Nothing got away this time with a bullet in him. Another good size one too, 34 lbs. He was 402 yards, gave him 12" and few to the right for wind. So far I'm pretty impressed with the new set up.

Awsome slinger, the 40gr. Nosler Ballistic Tip is my favorite in my AR.

12 kills that I have actually found. Cripled a few more and knocked down and lost a few.

The set up was purchased at cabelas. Gun was on sale for $679.00, rings $70, scope on sale for $329.00. After tax I was almost $1200. Very pleased!!!

Looks like a great day.  That one on the right looks like he's been spending some time at the gym..

Good shootin!   It is hard to beat the .204 with the 40 grain V-max.   I knocked a few down this weekend with the same combo - great minds think alike :)

Congrats, If I shot 3 at least I would be smiling :chuckle:.  Yep, I'm almost always using my 204 anymore too. It's a great coyote caliber.
