I went out shooting yesterday with a friend to do some longer range practice on the gongs 400-800. Since my shooting spot is in the middle of sagebrush ground, theres always the chance of running into a coyote. This has happened to me before, not having a gun out and ready and we see a coyote. Well, since then I'd like to think I've got a little smarter and everytime I go shoot, I keep at least 1 of the rifles up front with me. Looks like it finaly paid off yesterday. Just as we were cresting over the hill, I spotted a yote jump out of some thick sagebrush/cover. I didn't see the other as I was locked on the one I seen first. I happned to have my .222 out with the new 55g NBT loads I worked up couple weeks ago. My coyote did the famous stop and look only to have me send one of those little 55g NBT right smack into his shoulder. He folded at the shot. Right after I shoot, I hear my buddies 30-06 blast off and see his coyote rolling. His was 198 yards on a dead run, shot with a 180g AB. We were pretty stoked. Getting 2 coyotes and not even planning on it was definately the highlight of the day. The little 55g NBT left a hellacious exit hole about 3" long and 2"wide. I think they'll work for yotes alright!! Heres me with the 222 coyote. I took the vx3 6.5-20x50 off the 7 mag and put on the 222 so I can dial out to 400 yards or so. Heres my buddy and his 30-06 coyote.
