My favorite coyote rifle is my 22-250. The longest shot i've had so far has been 300 yds. Dirt rolled the dog first shot.

At this time; it's a Wby "older version" Varmintmaster with a true too the contour of Wby's barrel in 26 inches... caliber is 6XC with a 70gr Sierra #1505 match king, sporting a Leupold 3.5x10 40mm scope with mil's. Not many get away if I do my part.

BH, so true. Who amongst us would haul back to the house or camp to get our favorite coyote gun and take the chance it'll be gone.

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

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

I like either my CZ 527 American in .223. I've been thinking of getting a 6.8 SPC upper for my RRA to use as well. A little more reach and a bit more horse power downrange. The .223 works well though.

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

I tell all the guy's at work, If I did not own a 22-250 of some kind, I do not think I could sleep!!! As far as My preference, I think it is the best Caliber ever invented!! I also shoot a 17 rem a lot to save on fur!! 223, 221FB ,222,204 243, and the trusty 12 gauge for the close calls, but whose counting!!!
