Re: Long range coyote rifle?

If you are buying factory, then 6mm remington. If building, then a hot 6mm or .25 fit the bill. For 6mm's think 6mmAI, .240 wby, 6x284. All easily done by any reloader. For hot .25's think .25-06AI, .257 wby, .25stw. The last is a wildcat, but will throw a 100 gr bullet 4000 fps. Had to mention that. Now for the real question, what are you going to build or buy? Look at richardscustomrifles for some ideas.

Re: Long range coyote rifle?

why not rebarrel the 22-250 to a 22-250 with a 1:7.7 kriger and sling 80 grain JLK's? or go with a 6.5 pacnor and use the 90's?

You are already set up for 22-250. Just use 80 VLD's

I have used everything, almost!I would go with the 25-06 Rem and be done with it. 3400fps with 100gr loads with IMR4831. Have taken deer at over 600yds and coyotes over 500yds. Outlaw
Hunt smart, make your own luck!!!
