Winchester Coyote opinion

Anyone shot the winchester coyote in the wsm calibers? Looks pretty nice, but can it shoot? Anyone had any experience with them?

Re: Winchester Coyote opinion

I've had one since they came out. I love the gun. Had some tune ups done by a smith. Had it pillar bedded, trigger work (2lbs) and a break installed. My pet load is 74 grns of H1000 and the Hornady 162 AMAX's/ It consistently prints .5 @ 100 with the factory barrel.

It's not a light gun, but managable for the deer woods.

I do my own reloading and have run about 900 rds through it and it is still doing fine. The 140 grn Winchester Silver Ballistic tips shoot better (.5/.6 @ 100) than any load I've worked up so far.

When the barrel goes it will be rebarreled in the 7mm WSM with a McMillan A5 stock.
