I was checking out some of the 19 caliber stuff on the Calhoun website. It looks really awesome! I would love to try it but was skeptical. I'm not in a position to hand load. The website said you could by loaded ammo for the gun from them. I don't know. Seems impractical right now.

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

James Calhoon makes loaded ammunition. I had a 22 Hornet in the CZ 527 that I sent to him to have it rebarreled. He does beautiful work. After shooting mine for a short time I sold my other 22 Hornet and my 22K-Hornet and all I shoot now is the .19 Badger. James is a great guy and really enjoys talking to you, he alway invites me up to do some squirrel shooting. I think that what really hurt him was when they came out with the .204 For me the .19 Badger is perfect. I had him re-barrel mine for two reasons. One was that I love to shoot ground squirrels and the only cartridge that I was considering was the 20 Var Targ. The other reason was that the way he makes his bullets they are the perfect Fur bullet. I have shot Ground Hogs with them with No exit, but with jellied lungs. I dont like the thought of a $350 Bob Cat with a large exit hole. The other thing is that it is just a really fun gun to shoot. 32gr bullet at 3600 17.8gr of A2200
Even Grey Fox pellts look great....................I first started shooting his 46 gr bullets out of my .222 then his 30gr ones for my 22 Hornets.................
The only draw back is that he is the only one to make the 19 cal bullets so I just purchased 3,000 of them and 500 cases.

They are so much fun to shoot with almost no recoil and they explode ground squirrels

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

I've killed several over the yrs with the .223rem and 55gr hp never had them do anything other than drop. I've experimented with the 53v-max superformance and love them out of my ar. Until I got my ar i shot them with a 243win, I've hit them with 75grhp, 95gr ballistic tips and regular old rem corloks same results with all dead as a sack of hammer and never moved again. I'm currently shooting 58gr superformance and 58 gr ballistic tip winchesters, here in alaska I've got a chance of calling in a wolf and I want a little more firepower. Not to mention a ruger american rifle is much lighter than my ar.

I'd like to have a 220 swift! Speaking of STW's, I'd like to have a 257 STW.
