My hat is off to you. I have had kills at ,1300 plus but not on anything as small as a coyote.

Hell that's not just great shooting it's amazing. Again, my hat is off to you.

Re: Long range coyote gun?

I've been wondering about a 260 I've never shot one. Like every other firearm someday I will. What kind of groups,affected by wind much?

Pick any round shooting the .264 and you will have one that can buck the wind well due to the very high BC's in the 130 and 140gr bullets.

I like the .260 best of all of them simply due to the economy of loading it.

You can get either the .260 brass or just neck down 308 brass for it and it's anything but a powder hog.

How they shoot group wise of course is up to the individual rifle, load, and shooter but they have been winning 1,000yds competitions since the wildcat was developed.

Mine shoots pretty well. This target is 20 rounds fired in about 1 minute 40 seconds and I did have about a 20mph half value left to right wind that day.


Here's the rifle. Nothing fancy but it does the job. I've done some "remodeling" to it since this but basically it's still the same gun.

I don't think that's a thousand yard target. If so that Texan is one bad mother,well you know the rest. Nice rifle for sure.

No that's a 250yds target. Sorry for the confusion. Here's the original post on the subject.

The New .260 AR

It does however hold MOA at 1,000.

There may be an AR that can shoot .25moa at 1,000 for 20rds in under 2 minutes but I haven't seen it and I doubt if I had it I've got the skill to take advantage of the additional capability.
