Re: Only found one coyote....

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..

Flybuster ,

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....

Re: Only found one coyote....

Mike I have never done buisiness with this company but someone posted its link on this website, swiveling notched bi pods for $79.95. http://www.greenmountaintactical.com...ipods_s/34.htm
I haven't seen a better price. I wished I had some money right now. Been layed off for a total of 3 weeks, still got payed unemployment but you can't just sit at home! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Gas prices on the other hand. But the real bummer, I lost $400 dollar fly rod in the lake. I was catching some nice trout, one even went 17.5" real thick, next fish I know pulls the rod off my pontoon boat into the lake. I panic, rowed the wrong way. I Tried to grab it as it sunk like the Titanic into the murky waters. Then she was gone. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
P.S yes the 1200 CRF Leica , From Bill Bailey.

Re: Only found one coyote....

You will be real real happy with the 25-06 Ackley when it comes time. I thought the standard cartridge was the bomb, till I shot the improved. Mines a Sendero that has a 1-10" Lilja 3 groove, but its throated for the 87 grain hollow point. But this short throat seats the 100 grain bullets nice, but not too great with the 115s, except Berger VlD cause its short bearing surface. Theres good reloading data in Sierra edition 5, and if your lucky you can get a Redding Comp seat die. Only problem so far is I'm sitting on 1000, 75 grain V-max and they dont shoot worth beans outta this barrel. They are by far the most explosive bullet I have encountered, so I will keep them for someday.

Re: Only found one coyote....

Flybuster ,
Thanks for the green mountain site.

Bummer on losing a nice fishing rig.

Being out of work can be stressful -i know i've been there.
I to have some 75gr v-max they are about the most frangible bullet going.I'm doing some load developement w/ some remington brass and 75gr v-max right now.<-Trying to use up 80pc of rem brass -the 75's shot great w/winchester brass.

I killed another coyote friday -i'll post a picture soon.
55gr sierra blitzking out of a 22-250 rem 700- he's missing about five inchs of spinal column.-Mike

Re: Only found one coyote....

Another good coyote..
Called in two nice coyotes - spooked one but killed this 22-24lbs male within sight of the ranchers livestock.
Guessed him to be 300yd actually 250ish.
Rem 700 22-250 ,hs precision,douglas xx 26" stainless ,zeiss 4.5x14-44.
Shoots 55gr sierra blitzkings w/h-380 into .4"-.5" groups.
I went back to a 250yd zero -was using mpbr=maximum point blank range but the midrange trajectory is too high [3.5"] for my taste.You can easily over shoot a coyote especially if you use a hard surface to shoot off of.

Re: Only found one coyote....

That's a great looking stock Mike, Those H-S are the way to go. That wound is from a 22-250? Maybe I need to be shooting bigger bullets out of mine! Im using H-380 w/50 v-max, but IMR just came out with a new short cut powder called IMR-4007sc, which shows some good velocity promise with 55 grain bullets can't wait to try it.
