Re: Sighting In a Leupold
What I use for a "general" coyote set up would be my .220 swift with 55g at 3925fps. Sighted in 2.5"high at 100, you can prety much hold dead on, or at the top of back of a yote out to 350. You still have to lead them suckers a ways, or my other general coyote buster is the .243 shoting the 55g btip at 4050fps. Sighted in at 2.5" high, its dead on out to 350. Hitting the running coyotes is a lot easier when all you have to do is worry about the lead, not the elevation. What I was saying from my experience, when you have a running yote say 350 yards, with my 200 yard zero's, you then have to hold over and lead. Just makes it to hard, especially when your in a hurry. Its just a lot easier to sometimes have a regular set up instead of a click set up for running coyotes is all I was meaning by it. I have hit many running coyotes from 200-400 yards, and I have missed just as many as well. Maybe I should have used a different choices of word instead of "dead meat" however, its a lot easier to hit them when all you have to do is somewhat guesstimate the range, if you know its about 350 or so, just lead them and start shooting. With a click set up, all you ahve to be off is 25 yards and your going to be shooting way low, and still have to worry about the lead. Anybody get what I'm saying???
