    I haven't seen a coyote yet that wasn't a shooter. They're great rifles.

    I don't really like the looks of the cut outs. Mine's not officially a Coyote.

    I put a Krieger palma barrel on my M70 chambered in 6.5x284 and stuck it in one of those ugly Coyote stocks. I figured the stock would be temporary until I was ready to order an HS.

    Well, it's a shooter and I actually like shooting with this stock better than the HS on my Sendero. So, I wouldn't hesitate to own one.

    Here's the deer my daughter used it on this year...

    I've owned two Coyotes, 300WSM and 308win. I sold the 300WSM and kept the 308win. Hunting public land in PA, I saw no reason to have a 300WSM to finance another rifle. Of course, about 6mos after selling it, my wife said I should plan an "Out West Elk Hunt" with my hunting buddies. Wish I still had my 300wsm. It shot sub-MOA groups ( 3/4" and less) with 165gr and 180gr loads. Recoil was mild for a magnum. It shot better than the 308win, until I finally came up with good load. I'm now getting groups close to 1/2". The Coyotes hold great and shoot!
