Ruger Model 77 Mark II KM77VT .204 Ruger

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The .204 cartridge shot well in this accurate rifle, though the pairing was not as good a bargain as the Savage. The round delivered speed a little below what it was advertised to do. Onthe rifle, we liked the laminated stock and fine trigger pull.

Though Ruger offers a variety of rifles in the new caliber, we suspect this Target Gray model with long, heavy barrel will be the best seller. The hinged floorplate was hard to open, we thought. The mag held five rounds.
The controlled-feed bolt was slick in its operation. Feeding, function and all operations were flawless. Ruger had another winner here.
The .22-250 has a head size same as the .308 or .30-‘06. The .204 Ruger head is the same as that of the .223 or .222 family of cartridges. The .223 WSSM is based on the .404 Jeffery head size, which seems a touch silly to some of us. Bench resters, though, have long liked the squat profiles for extreme accuracy.
