Re: FMJ's on coyotes

Have you tried to hit something at 300 yards with a mortar, one of the hand guided types without a tripod ? It takes quite a bit of skill and practice.

When I was serving on the Namibian/Angolan border in 1987, it was just 9 guys in my Eng corps unit assigned to about 200 infantry right on an infiltration route.

We got ourselves a device called a "Patmore"


We even learned to fire it from out our armored vehicles which were open on top.

When we did target practice we used to set up close to a local village and then have local villagers select a target for us to hit with smoke mortars. It never took more than 2 shots (about 10 seconds after the first hit) to hit it. Having the locals know that we had and could use such a weapon was probably one of the reasons I am still alive today.

Good bang for buck with those. What are you shooting them out of?

How close do you have to land to your target to do "some damage"? I would rig my bipod up to that.

Good bang for the buck 20 years ago. but even the steel cased tulammo soft point is $.36 per round now. Found some what I think is 8n3, so I am happy about that. It will be out of an SGW bullpup stocked $80 SKS. You can tell me how long ago it was that the SKS was $80. Still needs a trigger job, but Kivaari is 2 months behind. Wanna get the gun built and shot before the trigger ships out.

Re: FMJ's on coyotes

Anyone other than me ever put a lot of thot and money into a custom rifle and then have it not be what you were hoping for.

The longer I have my 6.5 Creed. The more I like it and the more I see how it just right fits the bill I had for it.

A 60mm HE round would have a killing radius of about 34.5ft according to this source D-day: The Invasion of Normandy, June 6, 1944 - Randy Holderfield, Michael Varhola - Google Books
