Ultimate Long Range Coyote Rifle

I am in the process of looking to build a super long range coyote rifle. I hunt competativley and have a custom call making business so I would like to win a major hunting tournement. I get shots at a thousand yards plus and want to maximize my ability to make hits.

I am looking for the ultimate in flat shooting wind bucking rifle/bullet cobination. I am not in the hide preservation business so I it does not have to be fur friendly.

Any thoughts? I don't even mind shooting a larger caliber if that is what is necassary. My goal is to have the flattest shooting rifle around. However I would like to keep it to 30 cal and under.

    My choice would be a 6.5x284 shooting a 140grn A-MAX at 3100fps. Another good choice would be a 300 WSM shooting the 210grn Beger at 2900fps. Norma makes excellent 300 WSM brass.

    Would you say that the 264 WM would be better than the 6.5x284?

    And I assume you want low wind drift, too.

    Then the hot 7mm's would be the answer.

    Sounds like you need a 7mmSTW.

    If your looking for fast and flat the line of 7mm Allen Mag cartridges are just that. Coyotes at 1000 plus yards is a huge challenge even if you have a vast amount of experience in shooting long range. What ever your choice hope you do well in competition.

    7AM.....coyotes....yeah that would probably be enough.

    how big/heavy can this gun be?

    how many rounds before the barrel is toast?
