Re: Pistol?

The 6BR is a great cartridge, but I don't think it will give you the performance you are wanting on yotes beginning @ 500 yards and further.

.243 Win then? Geez, this sounds like it is starting to get into high levels of recoil.

And $1800+ might be a deal breaker on the HS. I think that is about the point at which I would go the custom route and not fight a right-handed action. I would think a left bolt, left port gun would be better for a right-handed shooter. Still $1000 less than a complete rifle though. . .

Re: Pistol?

The Savage Strikers are left bolt, right port...that might work for you. They can also be had from the factory in .243 winny w/ the AMB (Adjustable Muzzle Brake). A better choice may be the .260 Rem for 500+ yards. The top gun pictures is my 22-250 w/ a factory varmint taper rifle barrel cut to 16". It will shoot 50gr VM's into the .1's on a good day but stick to the .3's very consistently. Dial in a little better than 10MOA and milk jugs at 500yds are busted. The bottom gun is the Super Striker in .223 Remington...thyy come w/ a 9" twist...nice for heavies but not my flavor...now it wears a 16.75" Shilen SS Match barrel in 7-08.

Re: Pistol?

recoil is a very subjective thing, but I don't consider a 243 Win. in a SP to be much in the recoil department.
With a 243 Win. SP you will end up getting 6BR rifle MV's.
I rarely hunt coyotes, but my hunting buddy sscoyote does quite a bit with specialty pistols. He may be better at giving you what would be considered a miminmum cartridge to take yotes beginning at 500 yards.
Another question is, do you want this to kill a yote and save the hide or just kill a yote?
sscoyotes LR dog SP is a 6.5WSM and his other SP's for closer ranges are 17 Mach IV, 20 BR, and the 243 WSSM.

Re: Pistol?

what did you do to the stock. It's a cool looking hand cannon. Also how hard is it to have on of the strikers rebarreled. Is there a maximum barrel length on pistols? Thanks guys

Re: Pistol?

Rebarrel a striker the same way you would a Rem XP. Any good smith can do it.
There is no federal max length for SP's unless it is within a states requirement for hunting.
