I think just because its not common. It seems like an awesome round a guy could just dedicate as a coyote caliber. I found one back in the spring but was too broke to get it.

    It was in a bolt action. It was an old savage 340. I really liked its oddness. I'd love to have a Calhoun but same thing. I know you know that! I checked Thompson Center and I'm able to get a 225 barrel for my Encore. That's pretty cool cause there's a chance I won't have over 350 in it.

    In the past I have hunted yotes primarily with .243. This year, I'm going after them with the .257 Weatherby and 80grn TTSX's.

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
    I had the same problem with a 22-250 and started using a 25-06 with 90 grain hollow point No more runners. I love it
