Re: 30 caliber coyote rifle
Gotcha....Never hunted anything up north before. Just everyting that lives down here in Alabama. I would like to go hunting Caribou, Elk, Moose, Polar Bears, Grizzly's.....etc...
Yeah, the .257 Wby is great for thin-skinned game even out to 1K, but when I have bigger "hammers" on my workbench, suited for the task at hand...Why not take the more humane route, ya know?
I wouldn't hesitate to shoot a whitetail out to 750 with the 110 Accubonds or 115 Berger VLD's.
I have talked to Ryan @ Berger several times about possibly looking into a 130gr VLD for the .257 calibers. I think it would honestly be a game-changer and a BC monster. Not sure how a 130 VLD would handle out of the 1:10 Krieger (factory Accumark barrel) on my Weatherby, but I would love to find out!
I honestly believe that a 130gr .257 VLD would be the next revolution for 1/4 bore calibers, and you would see alot more people choosing .257 calibers for deer, antelope, & caribou sized game. With the added weight, it would buck the wind better, have higher BC, and I wouldn't hesitate to take it on out to 1,000 yards for shooting deer sized game, once pushed into a large .257 magnum case, such as the .257 Wby, or .257 STW.
