Default Varmint Special

Marks Outdoors in Birmingham has a pallet of Remington 700 VLS .204 Ruger coming in next week. These are laminate with a varmint contour bartel and jeweled bolt. The best thing about then is they are about 50% off retail. I just ordered 2 should ship to me next week, got them for $450 plus shipping. $920 ain't bad for 2 new Remingtons. If interested call and put your name on the list they are going fast.

Marks runs some outstanding deals from time to time and this sure seems like one. Good snag Chase and thanks for sharing.

But seriously, did you need two more rifles, LOL.

No, not really, more of a rhetorical question that I already know the answer to all to well .......

Poor sales has led them to "blow out" the 204 in several models. They will only chamber it in special runs from now on.

I have received flyers from several other large dealers with similar sales on them.

Savage is also considering drastically reducing the number of rifles it chambers in 204.

lack of demand.

Yeah and its a cool round to play with. One thing Im not to fired up about is this gun has a 12 twist barrel. Was hoping for a little faster so I could throw some 55gr out there. But either way it will be fun to play with.

Default 223 Rem

If you want to shoot bullets that are that heavy and slow,maybe you should stick with the 223Rem. Personally I would want the gun to do what it was designed to do....very light weight bullet....very fast.

May I ask,who makes a 55gr in .204" ?? ---SAWMAN

Berger makes 55gr and Im not positive but I think Seirra makes them. And they are a couple custom bullet makers that make them in 50 and 55gr.

Either way, that 204 should be very nasty to the vermin realm!!!!
