Thanks, Len.

Say hello to Wyoming for me. I love that state.

Great rig. That should treat you well. The 243 AI is a nice round. Travel safe.

I just finished fire forming and started working up a quick load for my Wyoming coyote trip in 2 days. I was verifying my 300 yard data and practicing my seated coyote hunting technique using Ulrich's tripod. (When hunting with Scott we shoot seated and with Jesse we shoot prone).

I got the vertical worked out pretty well except for one shot low. I aimed midway between the top and bottom black tape. This 300 yard group from a seated position measured 2.87 inches wide by 0.5 inches high for 7 shots with the 8th jerked shot bringing the vertical spread to 2.7 inches high.

In the last photo I am showing my new tripod from Ultrec Pro-Hunter . I have used Stoney Point for years but this newer one is more stable and the height adjustment is a little quicker in a hunting situation since the legs have lever adjustments that work with one hand. And twice now, I have had legs fall of of a Stoney Point because of the adjuster thingy's connections. In this shoot, I had attached Stoney Point's tag-a-long thingy to give me some rear support.

Anyway, my new Center Shot Rifles' coyote killer is going to be a real shooter and Jim was great to work with.
I know this is an old post, but how is that stock to carry around? I am thinking of putting my Rem 700 7mm with Douglas # 5 contour into this stock. I love the looks, I am just curious as how it handles as a gun to carry around the mountains if needed. Thanks.
