I'm still putting the reloading materials together, so I've not had a chance to shoot it at the range or hunt with it, yet. Based on ballistics, this rifle should be the "Hammer of Thor".

What's your caliber of choice, for hunting coyotes?

Thank you, Bowhunter57
My caliber of choice is 243 win With a 55 grain Nosler Ballistic tip 24055 they are around 3658 MV and do a great job for me. out to about 350 yards. Knocks them dead in a flash.

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

My favorite is .243 Winchester with 87 grain vmax and 37.5-38.0 Varget. May be a little warm so start out 10% lower and make sure safe in your gun. this is out of several custom .243's and a tikka. All 1x10 twists. My middle son shot 2 coyotes with one shoot last year when they lined up side by side about 100 yards. He didnt hit bone on the closest one and got the second one too. If you hit bone it will make a BIGGGGGGG hole! the same son shot a bobcat at around 150 yards and didn't hit bone, hole in, just a slightly larger hole out. He is having it mounted. 87 vmax is ok when you want to save pelt if you place shot most of the time!

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

I just started fire forming brass for my new 6mm turbo 40 AI. Only using 28 grains of Varget and some old 85 grain Sierras, but quite impressive groups so far. It will take the bulls eye out of a 6mm br target at the 200 yard range. Can't wait to see what it will do with a 100-105 grain Burger, and some different powder!!
