Either will work w/ the .223 being less expensive to shoot.

you still haven't given details as to what type of gun that you want to build. bolt action, semi auto, single shot, ect. ect. what about scope choices? more information is needed to help you make better choices that will help you build a gun that will serve it's intended purpose.

The 204 has limited bullet choices compared to the 223

Why not go with something in 06, a whole lot of bullets there from 65 to over 200 grains, just a thought.

The 204 has limited bullet choices compared to the 223
the 223 has a lot of offerings in bullet choices, but bullets for the 204 are getting better, with hornady having four, ranging from 24gr to 45gr weights. so the 204 is getting better in choices, and maybe even getting more in the future.
