Just recently purchased a Cooper Montana Varminter in .204 which was used but never fired. Plan to mount a NightForce 6.5-25 50MM on it for fox and coyote. I was currently using a Remington 700 5R Milspec in .223 but I think this will outshoot it,(if that's possible). The .204 shoots 32gr or 40gr at over 4000 fps and shoots flatter than a .223 or 22-250. The interesting part is that the firing impact is such that you don't lose image when the shot is squeezed off. I've attached pic of the rifle and the factory test target shot from bags.
