Necking down to the .204

What calibers can be used for making .204 brass? I know that the .222magnum is where the .204 originally come from, but can the .204 brass be resized from .223 brass or any others? I see bulk .223 LC brass at great prices sometimes and was just wondering if this would be an inexpensive way to build up my .204 brass supply, as long as I don't mind putting the time into reforming the brass.

It takes a 222mag case to re-size to a 204 ruger, so no cases from a 223 rem.

However, best price new 204 ruger is 26.00$ per hundred.

If you want to use 223 brass, you need a .20 Tactical.
