Re: prairie coyote gun

Re: prairie coyote gun

Yeahhhh, I would have to agree that Vmax bullets aren't very pelt friendly but since I don't save pelts, I reallllly like the carnage they create This one was zapped with 75gr Vmax out of my 6-284.

Since you can get factory 6.5-284 ammo my vote for your "Prairie coyote gun" would go toward a 6.5-284. It would reach out and touch them as far as you wanted.

what MV are you shooting them at. and how far was the shot..for comparison i like to know how fast the bullet was going when it hit.
