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

I am going to reload the 06 with 85 gr pills for coyotes. Well let us know what kind of load you come up with for your 25-06.[/QUOTE]


Hey guy's just a thought ... if your reloading for 25.06 Rem; using 30.06 sporting or military brass’…, you might think about turning your necks after you’ve neck them down in your resizing die. Not turning in a .25 cal from a .30 cal cartridge can lead to chambering and high pressure problems when you don’t.

You may want to try the 87 grain Speer TNT as well. 58 grains of H4831SC gives you about 3500 FPS. I have not tried them on game yet, but the life sized wood chuck target I got are taking a real beating out to 300 yards with that combination.
Not very consistant in weight, but I bought 400 of them, so I have about 100 of 4 different weights (87.1, 87, 86.9, 86.8) and a few foul out round candidates that dont fall into any of those weights.

I'll have some good data on this projectile's terminal performance by this time next month.

.223 in my neck of the woods is a runner waiting to happen. Average shots are 250+, so I really didn't have much luck with it. Lots of guys around here use 22-250, .220 Swift, and .243. I have a .243 WSSM upper with a 1/8 twist that I can't wait to try out on a song dog, I just know I'm gonna love it! Also I think a .264 WM is in my future for those reeeaaaallly far shots!

Some of the terminology is well known, some more local. A Leurgeon is a mythical beast known to steal sox, ammo, essential camping/hunting/fishing supplies, and make weird noises that require investigation in the middle of the night. A.K.A Trolls
I dont know what you guys down south call Gators, so your not alone in the odd terminology of critters Chas1. Plus youve got fish Ive never hered of too.
I think "whistle pig" refers to rock chucks. They whistle, I haven't a clue why.
