The Dasher looks good. I just wish it had just a bit more oomph, maybe up to 3400fps?

coyote 1000 yards

a coyote is a very small target. i have shot the 300 win and 6.5-284 at 1000 yards. i have killed around 250 coyotes. farthest one was 492. for $ 1000 for the rifle your only choice is either a sendero/laredo in .264 mag or 7 mmmag; or the savage f class 6.5-284. if you add the amount for a remington action ; kreiger barrel and a mcmillan/or hs precision stock you are going to be over 1000 for the gun. none of those calibers will go 1500 rounds. and they are a little too much for gophers. maybe a 6mm ai. my opinion the 22 cal is not enough for coyotes at 1000 yards( not saying it could not be done just not consistently).

4. Accurate enough to consistently hit gophers at 1000 yards in the field (some wind, etc) without me having to be a competition quality shooter.
Not askin' for much - are you?

Where do you buy your drugs?

If you want 3400fps from a 6mm 105... you're looking at probably something like a 6mm-284... and barrel life is going to be interesting most likely.

The Dasher should get the job done (figure what the actual percentage of shots you might take at those distances - usually small for most people - and weigh them into the equation); it definitely has the accuracy at distance.

At some point you're going to have to learn to read the wind. Trying to outsmart it by going to bigger/faster bullets only gets you so far... eventually you need to learn to shoot in the wind. And it'll still probably eat your lunch more often than not. At least it does me ;)

I would have to agree; How many shots are going to be @ 1000 yards???

I don't know how much coyote hunting you do, but it is way more fun to call them in and have to bark at them to stop them at 100 yards, than it is to poke at them at long distance. The way I have my yote rigs set up, if I get a dog that holds up way out there I can range him and have a good chance to kill him if it is not too windy. I won't shoot at him if he is past 600 yards even in no wind because 98% I will miss, and 100% of the time I will never call that dog in again.

Its one thing to shoot gongs or prairie dogs out to 1000 yards off of a bench, but I would have to say killing a coyote at 1000 yards is not impossible, but almost ;)
