Have you tried some light projectiles in the .223 Chris such as the vmax 53gr which has a good bc? My vote goes to the 22-250 if I had to choose either from your choice as my .223 does everything and more than the 204 can do.

Though a week ago whilst out around the golf courses I thought I came across a human body, legged it up to the heat source with phone ready in hand to dial 999 to find out it was ash from a previous fire...

I had a good test with mine on 3 rifles last wee...
