R-man 25-06 ,
I don't know the velocity of the load [chrono on the want list] but the gun shoots consistent 1" groups at 200yds in good conditions.
I've lapped the lugs ,polished the crown ,and bedded the hs stock ,bedded the bases tuned the trigger to about 2-3 lbs.
For a factory rifle it's a good'un.
Shoots accubonds ,75 v-max ,85 nos bt's equally well.
when the barrel is gone i'll go to a 25-06AI.
And yuup you'd think the 50 yd female would have been a given.I covered a LOT of ground searching for them but MIA.
Your right some coyotes just don't want to die -i shot one five times w/a 221 fireball at close range -what a mess..
I couldn't find the coyote [first one 365yds] in the scope after the shot ,but once i got focused in on him i could see that he was bloody on his stomach and face.<- Biting at the wound i'm sure.
The 50 yarder was unzippered down its left side and could barely run [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img].I didn't worry one bit when it ran around the hill b/c i had already been searching the direction it ran --very open nowhere to hide.<- WRONG.
I'm still puzzled !
A good rest is the absolute most important aspect of longrange shooting -i'm still trying to figure out a good field system.
I'm going to get a knotched leg swivel 9-13" w/a pod lock soon and a rear bag from triad.
CRF 1200 is a leica?
And yes i do like a foxpro
-got two of them actually.
I like to put the caller out a ways facing into the wind -use the locator howl then answer w/a handcall.
If i see a coyote i shoot it -period....
