Re: 6mm Coyote Rifle

To throw a bit of a spin on the subject, how about a 243wssm AR-15?

I've got a custom AR (more of the man-killer type than the coyote-killer type) but I just have a thing for bolt guns.

Re: 6mm Coyote Rifle

I've got a 6-284 on a M-70 action with an ABS/Rock barrel 1:8 twist. Everything Kirby has said is pretty much spot on. I only use the 107 SMK because of the A-Max and Berger explosion issue. The unfortunate part of this is that the A-Max shot great until about 200 rounds down the barrel. Because of our almost unlimited antlerless deer tags I have killed nearly 100 deer in the last three years and most of them with the 107 SMK. It is very effective out to 700-800 yards and then it will pencil through. I've killed a dozen coyotes but they haven't been past 400 yards and all but maybe 2 or 3 had significant holes in them. If you really want to take advantage of all the great 6mm bullets available stay away from the 6-284 but if you don't mind the SMK or even the 95 Nosler BT it will work. I've often thought the 6-284 may be better suited shooting light bullets REALLY fast. My barrel did shoot the 87 gr V-Max fairly well.

The minimum I would shoot would be the 87 gr v-max. I'm really looking to shoot the heavier bullets (105-107 gr.) specifically to buck the wind.

Re: 6mm Coyote Rifle

Timberbeast7,

I prefer the 6mm-284 for single shots, a bit more performance, no fireforming.

I prefer the 6-06 in repeaters because its higher level of performance, much better feeding and again, no fireforming needed.

If I want a smaller 6mm, or a light bullet loaded 6mm, I would go with a 6-250 or 6x47 lapua just for longer barrel life.

For the big 6mm, I am all about performance and with no need to fireform brass, I prefer the two mentioned for those reasons. Not saying they are better, more accurate or anything else. They likely have less barrel life, again, I want performance if I am going to bother to drive a +105 gr 6mm bullet as I will not be shooting the rifle high volume so the shorter barrel life is of no real concern to me.
