From the.222 Remington Magnum came the.204 Ruger, which has the biggest case capacity of all of the Remington Magnum family. The only larger cartridge is the European 5.650mm Magnum, which is really a stretched out.222 Remington Magnum. For around the same price as the NATO 5.5645mm, the.222 Remington Magnum has about 5 percent more useable (below the neck) case capacity (.223 Remington).
The.204 Ruger was created by shortening the.222 Remington Magnum case to ruger ammo 204 inches (5 mm), relocating the shoulder forward, and increasing the angle to 30 degrees. It is possible to purchase bullets ranging in weight from 24 grains to 55 grains and in the.204 caliber (1.55 to 3.56 g). A 32-grain (2.1 g) bullet from the Hornady factory is rated at 4,225 feet per second (1288 meters per second). The factory’s internal SMP746 powder mix, custom-made by Primex and unavailable to handloaders as of 2013, is responsible for these speeds.
A de-coppering agent is used in the propellant to lessen the likelihood of fouling. Hornady’s reloading data with commercially available powders shows that the 32-grain (2.1 g) bullet may achieve a maximum velocity of slightly under 4,200 feet per second (1,300 meters per second) in longer barrels. In addition to the standard 5.56x45mm/.223 Remington chambering, many manufacturers of AR-15 rifles now also offer the.204 Ruger.
Designed around the hard-hitting performance of the famous Hornady V-Max bullet, this ammunition is specifically designed for supremely accurate long-range shooting. The polymer tip enhances accuracy and promotes devastating expansion. It also increases the ballistic coefficient and stabilizes the bullet in flight. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.
