Budget Long range coyote rifle (new target pics in post 5)

I decided I wanted a custom rifle for coyote's. I always wanted a cartridge that wasn't that common, and I also wanted to do it on a cheaper budget as it is a coyote rifle. Well I got it back today.

Savage Model 11 with detachable mag
Timney trigger at about 1.75 lbs
Shillen matte barrel varmint contour in .220 Ackley 1-9 twist
HS precision stock in winter camo
Ken Farrel 20MOA base
Burris signature zee rings
Vortex Viper 6.5-20x44
Bedded and bolt timed
Larger winter marksman knob

No local smith wanted to tackle trying to make this feed. The guy that I got the barrel through managed to get 4 rounds to feed like butter. I am super busy right now but will get better pics up once the scope is mounted



I loaded up 100 rounds to fireform the other day. I just picked a mild load of IMR 4064 behind some 50gr Barnes Varmint Grenade's that I didn't think I would ever use. I just used OAL for a 60gr bullet and slapped them together. I wasn't hoping for much with no load development. If I could get 1 1/2 " groups atleast I could use them this winter for coyotes.

I got out to the range today and it was chillly and overcast with a breeze. It took three shots to get a close zero. Then I adjusted the scope shot a 3 round group, adjusted to fine tune the zero then fired another 3 shot group. so the bottom two targets are shots 4/5/6 and 7/8/9 out of this rifle. Squares are 1 inch shot at 100yards

I was quite surprised and it makes me want to get my but in gear and get going on load development with the 75gr A-max I plan to shoot with the fireformed brass.



Thanks for looking I'll try for better pics of the rifle sometime soon

Jason

    Wow I have to say that I am really jealous. I have a 220 swift that I'm wanting to do the same with to shot the 75gr a-max. Your set up should be awesome for the yotes.
    Have Fun

    Finally got the load developement done with the fireformed brass and 75gr A-max. I settled on 43.5gr of RL-22. I am still learning lots about precision shooting so I do believe the groups can be shrunk still as Iam the limiting factor. All thats left is to find a chrony and build and verify a drop chart.

    Gusty conditions shot at 200 yards 5 shots. Used wind flags and front rest with rear bag off a bench.
