Re: .204 Ruger and .17 remington
You can take standard white tail deer with the 22-250 if you use the right bullet like a 60gr lead tip, but shot placement is key! I wouldnt try that with any thing smaller. For plinking i use 45gr rounds at 4000 fps and for longer ranges i usualy use 55gr at 3680fps. as for the 220 swift.... its a good round but the 22-250s case design is more versatile in the reloading realm. the 17rem and the 204 ruger are fun rounds but they are pretty much limited to smaller game/varmints.
Bullets change governments far surer than votes.
The most powerful weapon you can buy isn't a .50 caliber. It's a Senate Seat....
