I still use the same scope on one of my Savage package guns. Although they are cheap, they still hold up, even to a 30-06. A .204 will never give it that much punishment.

when I decided on the .204, I went to two places to look at guns. The second place was just replacing the case model with a new .204. The other one had a scratch on the underside of the stock. I got that one for $ 250.00 normally $ 450-475. I think I got a good deal. I"ve done worse to it since I had it, big deal ya know.

[/align]Yodeldog, Do you remember on another thread somebody wrote a comment about bullet weight for a Savage .204? I think they said to use a heavier bullet in them due to the twist rate. I can't find it right now though.

I don't remember where it was. About your pie hole, It happens . Don't sweat the small stuff. I went ahead and ordered some Remington Acu tip in 40 gr. today. Bass Pro was out of Hornady I guess. It was nowhere to be found on the web site,and I had a gift card. I almost bought the Winchester round ,but they were more than my gift card after shipping. Oh well. Going out for the first time on Sat. Any last minute tips?

Yea just the simple stuff, don"t pull the trigger, squeeze it.
start out with coyote vocals for the first 15 or 20 min. Then go to distress if you don"t see anything. If you get two dogs to come in and one hangs back on you thats the male, shot the female first couse the male will hang around longer than the female, sometimes. As long as you drop the female, If you get one, don"t jump up and celebrate, start you call sequence again. you may get one or two more to come in on you, nothing suprises me this time of year. Expect the unexpected. Most of all BE SAFE and have a good time and kill some dogs.
