:cool: Hey guys, i was relaxing last night at work, peaceful for a change, and I dragged out one of my books to read while I waited for 07:00, my bye-bye time. Came across this ad and thought I might share [that's a good liberal term] it with you and see what others thought. Anyway, it advertises what appears to be a new rifle/varmit round designed by Ruger! It is called : "204Ruger". The ad says the muzzel velocity is 4,225 fps!!
The nominal projectile weight is 30grains and the projectile is a 20 caliber. The ad also mentions some other good calibers. Your thoughts?:D
