Re: rifle caliber
You are way too considerate to both the neighbors and the coyote.
My closest neighbor is 110 yards from the shooting bench and she's gun shy. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
Several houses down, my shootin buddy's bench is even closer to his neighbor's back door. But hey, he was there first.
We get no complaints at his place until we get up to the 220 Swift and any thing above.
The quietist thing I have is a REM 722 222 Rem w/a factory 26" bbl. Though 350 is a stretch for the 222 unless you set it up for long range. Yotes usually don't allow that much time though.
I'd recommend a 223 and do some conditioning on the neighbors [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
