ND PD HUNT on 8-18-2017

I asked my son if he wanted to go with me on prairie dog shoot on Friday, August 18. Once in a while my son has Friday off from work because he works 10 hour days, but this Friday he had to work. So, no fun for him!!! I like to use Weather Underground’s website for weather predictions, especially th...

ND PD Shoot 8-10-2017

Thursday morning dawned and the weatherman had predicted lower temperatures and winds of only 2 to 4 mph which is unheard of in North Dakota. The weatherman was right!!! It was almost calm from early morning until I finished shooting at around 10:45 a.m. I had six rifles that needed fouling shots t...

ND PD shoot 8-4-2017 with my son

The surgeon who did the surgery on my back was here in Williston on Wednesday, August 2 and said I’m healing well, but if your buddy drives his truck into the ditch, don’t help push him out. So I can do the physical things I have been doing and I need to stop an activity if it is hurting my back. T...

Re: 2017 204 Ruger Five Shot Challenge

I have three .204 Ruger rifles. May I enter one target for each of these rifles or am I only allowed to choose one of the three .204 Ruger rifles and enter just one one target????

2nd ND PD Shoot of 2017

I got another late start today, July 7, 2017. Left the garage at 7:38 a.m. (exact same time I left on the July 1 PD shoot) and arrived at my parking spot for the first leg of the prairie dog shoot at 8:31 a.m. This time I had to avoid laying prone because that caused me lots of pain last July 1. I l...

Re: Spammers have taken over the 204 Forum!

Rick--Thanks for serving as a moderator. I appreciate you time and effort. I have to agree with you about spammers. The admins have to do something to prevent all the spammers. Like you mentioned, life is too short for the moderators to have to weed out these junk posts.

Back Surgery Patient on PD shoot 7-1-2017

I left the garage at 7:38 a.m. and at 8:21 I was headed north on the section line to see if I could get to the south gate on the PD town. Unfortunately, there was seeded crop growing on the trail I usually take to get to that gate, so, I headed back south to the gravel road than then drove east anot...

Re: Arctic Grizzly

Guy--Thanks for taking the time to post the story of your great hunt!!! I'm glad it was you chasing after you young guide. I'm afraid he would have left me in the dust.

You were in some beautiful country. Thanks again for the story and photos!!! :D

Re: Another ND PD Hunt on 9-28-2016

Slayer1962-- thanks for the trade offer, but I think I'll stay with my heavy old rifle!!!! I have spent way too much time and effort building the thing and working up loads so it wouldn't be too wise to trade it off. Besides, I wouldn't want to place such a "heavy" burden on anyone else :mrgreen:

Re: 204 Ruger brass

Sorry, no line on a source for WW .204 Ruger brass, but check out Norma or Nosler brass.

Re: brass options

truckerwalt-- I know the Nosler brass is quite a bit more expensive than the Norma brass. Back in late 2009, I purchased 150 of the Nosler factory 2nds and 100 of the Nosler firsts. The factory seconds seem to be every bit as good as the firsts (in my humble opinion), but at quite a cost savings. T...

Re: Savage FV M12 & Berger HP's

brooksb-- The 35 gr. FBHP Berger bullets are a GREAT bullet for coyotes. The BC is a bit low, but at reasonable distances they work just fine. I'd hate to see you have to use your rifle as a single shot when a simple fix will get you up and running in repeater mode. Check out the information I have...

Re: bolt face to Lands Savage M12fv

Before you trade this rifle in on another, I think most 204 Ruger owners will tell you their factory chambers are cut so there is a whole lot of jump before the bullets hit the lands. I believe you will find a seating depth or two that will produce excellent accuracy. Just give it a chance.
