204 Ruger Ammo
204 Ruger ammo started as a joint project released in 2004 by Ruger and Hornady. The round delivers extremely high velocity for efficient varmint extermination. A light 32-45 grain hollow point bullet achieves a muzzle velocity of around 4,000 feet per second in a typical .204 Ruger load, resulting in massive fragmentation that will put coyotes and other pests down in a hurry.
This caliber is based on a .222 Remington Magnum necked-down casing. The parent case's high capacity is key to achieving high velocities; in addition, factory .204 Ruger ammunition uses a proprietary powder known as SMP746 to achieve velocities of over 4,200 feet per second.
In-stock .204 Ruger ammunition for sale by many manufacturers including Sellier & Bellot, Winchester, Nosler, Fiocchi, and of course Hornady - look for all of them here at Widener's.

Hornady is one of the country’s most popular ammunition brands. This Nebraska-based company began creating big-game ammunition in 1949 and remains a popular, innovative, and versatile manufacturer to this day.
Outstanding accuracy and excellent wind resistance out to 500 yds.
These rounds consistently deliver 3/8"-1/2" ,5 round group at 100 yds. With my 67 yr. Old eyes and trigger finger I am quite pleased with the results. Wind drift for a full scale 90 degree wind was only about an inch at a 100 yds also.
