5.56/.223, 9 twist, bolt action, 24 in. barrel---bullet???
I just ordered a new coyote rifle with the specs mentioned in the title and to be honest I have no experience with .223. I know every rifle shoots just a little different, but I'd like everyone's experiences and thoughts on where to start. Here are my requirements:
1) MOST IMPORTANT--fur saving, even with small fox.
2) Strong enough to take a coyote down hard and johnny-on-the-spot.
3) Pin-point accuracy.
4) Long range capabilities.
I know there are more capable calibers (like the .204) for what I want, but please keep your responses strict to what's mentioned in the title.
