    I have pretty much always been a bolt fan, but here lately I have switched over to the AR15 platform as have the major majority of all my fellow predator hunters. I have a 6mm WOA being built right now which will be my number one go to rifle for all my predator hunting in the future.

    Go with a 243 WSSM. About like a 6mm Rem or a 240 Whby in performance. Fits right on your AR15 lower.

    When coyote hunting I usually have 2 rifles with me. When hunting with dogs or when expecting closer shots at running couotes I carry my AR. It`s a Rock River flat top with a 3 x 9 Leupold on it. When sitting and snipeing I carry my Savage. It`s a .22-6mm and wears an 8 1/5 x 25 Leupold scope on it. I have fired 1 - 3 shot group with it at 600 yrds. was just over 2 in. When calling I usually call with a friend and one of us will carry a semi-auto .223 for up close and personal and the other a reach out and touch them gun.

    +1 with the .243 WSSM. You could also go with a .25 WSSM. If you handload, you could even try necking the .25 up to 6.5. That would be a good one too.

    Dtech makes good uppers. Check them out.

    My buddy had this AR built with 1:8 twist 6mm kreiger barrel. It's chambered in "6mm AR" wich is a very nice long range cartridge (it's basically a 6.5 Grendel necked down to 6mm.



    This pic was taken at a local 300yd BR competition we went to (my rifle's just off to the right)

    I use the Stoner SR 25 and mine will shoot .5 with just regular ball ammo or with the 168 FGM. Don't shoot it that much so I don't reload for it but the 2 that I have I will be keeping. Nothing is better for short to mid range hog killing!
