We are just south of Burns. You'll probably go right by us.

    I use an old Remington 788 in .243 with a 95gr NBT over 33gr VarGet. Not the greatest fur load but it has worked very well for me up to whitetail sized game. Here are two shots from last month. I was hunting a box and had five dogs come in 100 yards out in the bottom of a ravine. They busted me instantly but I got the lead dog.

    Since deer were out of the question at that point I started hitting a pup in distress call on my cell phone and this cat came busting down the opposite side if the valley until it got withing 30 yards of the dog and started snooping. Cat stopped on a log overlooking the dog and I took him.

    No venison, but a good day none the less.

    I can tell you a combination of what is NOT a fur load . I just loaded some rounds for my 243 with 45.5 grs of Varget, 55 gr Nosler Varmint Bullets seated to 2.610" COAL, and WLR primers. They are going 3850 fps, and tear monster holes in coyotes. I thumped 3 on Saturday. I shot all three in the chest and all three blew holes out through their guts. The holes ranged from a baseball to a softball. All three shots were under a hundred yards too though. Definitely not a fur friendly round, but they are fast and flat. From 100 to 300 yards you just hold on your target. No guess work is what I was going for. When you have a dog come in and hang up and ready to leave, the last thing I want to do is adjust my scope or think about what hold I need for a shot. I just want to point and shoot. I've accomplished that, but I'm not into saving pelts. I'm more into putting dogs in the back of the truck for coyote tournaments.
