    lidsplitter,
    Thanks for specs, really nice rig. A rifle like that is what I have in mind for a varmint gun. Looking forward for a build like that in the future.

    It is not a good round for rabbit, most get blown in half.
    Not a good round for coyote mouths either. They obviously get blown in half too.

    Great shot. It kind of reminds me of some of the woodchucks that I shoot with the 55 gn. V-max. Some are not recognizable.

    A friend of mine "accidentally" shot two coyotes last year with his .300 WM Sendero using 168gr Bergers. When I say accidentally, I mean we were setting up on some dirt clumps in the neighboring fields. We noticed something moving at 400 yards. I got behind the spotting scope, he got behind his Monarch. At the shot, the coyote disappeared. I thought I saw a mist in the air, but I flinched when he fired. We hopped in the truck and drove over there. All I can say is I wish I would have taken pics. Basically, it looked like the coyote grabbed a lit stick of dynamite and tried to head for the hills. He decapitated a coyote! No head, no ears, only a partial neck.

    After a couple of hours and a few beers, we took a break to have another beer. In the same area, what should appear? Another coyote! He trotted over to where the other coyote was and sniffed it. We flopped back down and got ready. This time, the bullet struck the shoulder broadside. I'm almost positive you could have placed a watermelon in the open cavity the bullet left.

    Moral of the story, don't use 168grain Bergers if you plan on saving pelts!

    BTW way, imagine what those bullets would do on prairie dogs!
