Re: What's your caliber of choice, for coyotes?

This is my first post so hi everyone . I use a .17-204 moving 30 grain gold at about 4150 fps it still has some throttle left but I am happy with the groups and velocity I am getting. I have used a .223 , .22-250, .204 and a 17 rem.

    My go to for convenience /walk about are my AR's in .223, but for dead nuts accurate and short walks - .243 Rem-Varmint. I am interested in the Olympic Arms .243 WSM. I could see trading my Bush/varmint for, as they are the same style. I impressed myself the other day with my M-4 , Burris bdc , clang the steel 300 yds - no problem. Watch your backdrop and ricochets.

    Most days I have carried a .223 AR but on my next trip will take a .243 Remington 700 to have some more "reach."
