204 Ruger build

Postby Bob the nailer » Fri Nov 21, 2014 11:03 am

This looks to be a good place for info on the 20's. Finally have all the jags and rod for the tiny bore as .224 was the smallest I shot before.


Finishing up on a 204R build, need to headspace yet and finish inleting the stock then a high gloss finish. No rush as this is a fill in project, 1.250" no tapper 12 twist at 26"

Looks to be a very promising project, and we'll be interested to see some target results when she's all finished. About nine years ago, I had beaucoup .17 and .224" caliber varmint rifles. Once my first .20 came on board, it was like they started to propagate in the safe! Now there's five in there, and one on the way. You have entered into the Twenty Twilight Zone buddy! :mrgreen:

Welcome aboard.....it appears you are a Stephen Hunter fan too by your screen name. Lots of like-minded folks here on that one! (Just finished "Snipers Honor".....great read.)

As your new build in a 204R, you may be interested in cruising over here too:

First off welcome to the forum! :D

I look forward to seeing some pics of the finished rifle. Feel free to ask if you have questions on a good starting load for the 204, there are plenty of members here that have them.

Things are held up with the bolt still out for weld work. Hoping to get time over the holidays to finish sanding and seal the stock. Thanks for the info on loads.
