Ruger's mkii v/t is a heavy rifle if you plan to tote it around. The 26 inch barrel can be a bit unhandy at times but then again, its name is the varmint/target. Both of which would imply sitting stationary and enjoying some trigger time. The trigger on the v/t is adjustable and the two stage is nice but takes some getting used to if you are comfortable with single stage triggers. I have been very happy with the accuracy of my v/t rugers. However to tame the almost non-existant recoil of the 204 those extra couple of pounds may be redundant. If you handle one and feel it fits you well then I have no doubt you'd be pleased with one. However if weight is a concern at all I would encourage you to do your homework on other options.
So many coyotes....so little time....
