American predator 204, what does it like for ammo

Purchased that new predator in 204 caiber, what does it like in factory ammo. I see a lot of hornady 32gr vmax, 40gr vmax, and ruger signature series hornady vmax. Not much to pick from up in this area but what does yours like. thanks wk.

mine likes the hornady superperfomance 40gr vmax

just went downstairs to see if i could find a target, no luck, musta chucked it...
if i recall the 32 gr i could not cover with a snuff can, but the 40 it likes, still got most of a box of 32 left, i have read that the 32gr is what alot of others like...

you just have to try em and see which it favors..

32 gr Hornady

For some reason, mine likes the 32 gr Hornady Superformance. I had much tighter groups at 100yds--about 5/8". I couldn't get below an inch with the 40 gr stuff. I saw another member did better with the 40 gr though, so in the end, it comes down to you and your individual rifle. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I like mine. It's definitely a favorite.

I mentioned in your other thread that mine likes 32gr and 40gr Superformance Varmint. But come to think of it I found a deal on a box of the 24gr once so I bought some. I only shot it free hand at a bottle by the woods after a day of hunting though. I hit the bottle 4 out of 5 times at about 50 yds. Still got a bunch of the 24gr left to try in a more controlled environment.
