I haven't went and retrieved lastnights yote but I don't think the 168 grain berger out of my 300wsm at roughly 600 yards left that big of a hole..didn't go get it cause I didn't feel like crossin 5 fences and 3 ditches to go take a pic( 80 acre pasture that's sectioned for intensive grazing and the main ditches are in crp)

The two other yotes with him wouldn't come out where I could see em, I think the smoke in the wet grass have away my position...

My dad didn't believe I shot a coyote at 600 yards, he found blood(lots of blood) fur and a leg,along with a bunch of tracks and drag marks.. the other two must have been hungry...

Re: prairie coyote gun

I like the 243 its a good round for coyote and can double as a good deer,antalope rifle in a pinch. Ammo is for sale any place that sells ammo. I would shoot a good 95-100gr bullet and use it for both varmint and medium game, one load to learn and multiple uses, whats not to like.

Re: prairie coyote gun

25-06 would be my choice. I had read a lot of good stuff about the 25-06 and decided to give it a try. Wow! I've been shooting 100 grain Nosler Ballistic tips and they put the thump on them right now. I had one coyote go through a short spin cycle (lower gut shot) but the others have been bang flop. The bullet doesn't seem to blow em up that bad. The 85 NBT would probably be even better but these are working just fine.

What ever you decide save the brass! You just might want to start reloading and get that little extra out of the rifle.
