557-yd. AR-15 Coyote

Was out at one of my favorite haunts last week and got 1 at 557 with my ISSI AR 223 AI/65 SGK @ 3150/225 zero/Weaver V16 3 MOA TK Lee reticle pictured here. Interesting story. Spotted him from the middle butte in the picture and he was laying raising his head now and then. Lasered at 880-some yds. Too far with this setup. So i sees this closer butte off at a tangent (the lower one above the muzzle). Lasered it and figured it would get me around 500-600 yds--perfect. So i marked the spot as well as i could and took off after the closer butte. 5-10 minutes and i was setup on top of it ready...but couldn't find the coyote at this different angle. I knew he was close to 1 of 2 big cholla cactus, so i get setup and howl. Studied 1 of the cholla for a couple seconds--nothing. Then scanned to the next 1 and sure enuf he's sitting up looking at me. Quickly took a reading with the Geovids at 557. Checked my dope in the Butler Creek scope cap cover and i had to aim 2.8 3 MOA subtension units down for the shot--totally calm conditions. Looked back into the ocular found him put the 2.8 interpolative spot on him and shot. Regained sight picture and saw him scrambling around. He regained his feet for a couple seconds made a short death run and it was over. At that range bullet hit slightly low and ripped him up pretty good. No time to skin him ut took his tail. Oh well--

Another great shot Steve good going.I was out calling a few days ago and had a coyote standing broadside about that same distance but I knew my shooting skills were not up to the task so I let it pass.Keep up the good work.
