CALL - i shoot them with some of different ones- sako .243, remington 243 and an HK630. i shoot few of different bullets. 70 grain and 85, 87 , 88. that is due to the twist in my barrels. for longer range a have a 6.5-284 which is more than is needed. DISTANCE WISE- the rifle, ammo and scope are more important than caliber. i do not need the recoil of a 308 to kill coyotes.
