I archery hunt for deer ,elk, antelope. I could see myself using it for bear shooting across a huge clear cut or across a canyon.
Thanks for all the replys this is great info.
Any of the 6.5 factory calibers will be a great cyote gun as well, just pick the right bullet.
I spent two years making my mind up about what 6.5 to build and settle on the .260 Rem. I'll never regret it eather. It beats both the 4.5 lapua, grendel, and the creedmore in ever respect.
For other options look at the LRH classified ads as there's a hell of a lot of very nice custom and semi custom LR rigs for sale there at any given time.
