1122 yard coyote

I was watching some deer through the spotting scope thinking about taking a shot at 985 yards when some other hunters spooked the deer. After the other hunters went by a coyote came out behind them and started mousing a nearby hill side. My range finder picked him up twice at 1122 yards. I pulled out my rifle and began to set up. I dialed in elevation for 1125 and gave it 3moa right wind. I set up and dry fired a few times. After getting comfortable I put a loaded round in the chamber and let one fly. I watched the bullet impact the rear quarters of the coyote. He spun around in circles a few seconds and then went down. It is my longest hunting shot to date. I am shooting a trued model 70 pre 64 300 win mag. 26" lilja, 6.5x20 MRK 4 with mil dot, Mc Millan A4, Ferral 20 moa base, MRK 4 rings and a Jewell trigger. The load is Norma brass, 190 bergers, federal GMM magnum primers and a healthy charge of IMR7828 for a muzzle velocity of 3150fps. I also filled a doe tag the next day form 880 yards with a single shot.

Sorry no pictures, never have been much of a picture taker. That is something I will have to work on. It is still a great memory and it is always rewarding to set a personal best.

Jimm

I am starting to believe that the coyote shooters have some mental infirmaties when it comes to cameras. First Roygeterdone can't take a picture of his 1K coyote and now we have 300Win doing the same thing.

Re: 1122 yard coyote

It just makes me feel god to know that sombody is still shooting an old war horse like the 300Win mag. I've got a Sako L691 with a 25" Obermeyer barrel that I hope to make my first 1000yd kill on a deer with.
Basicaly the same load as yours.
