Well I used to have a .223WSSM, but I never seemed to have it on hand when a dog was anywhere near. It was an awesome rifle, but after starting up handloading and seeing what I could do with it I promptly traded it! I know myself too well. According to the book I could get 4600fps out of it, and me being me wouldve tried for 4650++++
so rather than burn up a bbl on a sub moa dog and rat gun, I traded it to a buddy who had an extra model 70 in 300wby! Besides Roy just posted something about superglue not working on loose primer pockets haha. My buddy's realy into varmint whackin, and Im into bigger critters while dogs are targets of oppertunity. So now I either take a 22lr or my 270wsm if Im varmint huntin, or whatever I have on hand when Im out shootin, or huntin. I havent yet seen if the 300wby is big enough for coyotes, but Im sure that Ill be able to tell you pretty soon hahaha
. Im thinkin itll do just fine, but I can deffinately see the bennifits of a 22 centerfire of some sort, just based on price per round.
I see an AR in my near future hehehe
