Re: Striker and the .308 family

Oh I forgot to mention, we have alot of wind here. So I need to think of a caliber that will buck the wind well.

Nope. 22-250 is 473 also.

Plus it's inexpensive to shoot, light recoil.

Get one. Cut down rifle barrels are cheap.

Re: Striker and the .308 family

I can see how addicting this can get! I need one of everything! lol
If the 22-250 can put down a coyote at 500yds. and the wind won't be to hard on it, then that might just be the ticket. (even if I do have to buy another set of dies)
Thank you again sir!

Re: Striker and the .308 family

After reading up on the 22-250, it does look like it might be more in the line of what I am looking for. You can load it to several different fps. From WMR velocity to almost 220 Swift speeds. It appears it can buck the winds better then alot of otber small calibers too.

Re: Striker and the .308 family

Although I like the 22-250 as a varmint caliber, for a 500 yard coyote, I would favor a 243, at least.

Re: Striker and the .308 family

If going with the 22-250 I would lean toward a faster twist and consider an A-Max, like a 75 grain, as it will give you some advantage in wind.
243 Win would be great as well.
Contact sscoyote as he will be a great resource here
