Texas heart shot w/ 300 gr MK graphic

Did a little calling in eastern WA last Sunday. Got this one to sneak up to about 230 yards. When I spotted her she busted us at the same time and took off away at about half speed. I clicked on 2.5 minutes elevation as I slid prone behind my 338 Lapua while Gabe tried to stop her with his mouth call but all she did was look over her shoulder and kept going away. I got the cross hairs just over her head and sent a 300 grain Sierra Match King down range at 2700 fps. The bullet hit just below the tail, totally gutting her. I watched the dust fly under and beyond the coyote, she seemed to continue running for a half second or so then piled up hard.
Shot was 311 yards

    Yup! Looks like you're running the Seekin's bottom metel and rings as well.
    What load are you using for your 300 grainers?
