    This is my new Varmit rifle. Some have asked for me to post a picture and info. It is a Winchester Model 70 stealth II, chambered in 243 WSSM, night force 20 MOA 1 piece base, Night force ultra light rings, Leupold VX-III LR 4.5 x 14 x 50 mm. It shoots a 58 grain Hornady V-Max Moly at a shade over 4000 ft/sec. Just got it together the other day and it claimed its first victim already. It left behind one messed up Coyote. Hence the title Coyote Ugly.

    Just thought I would share it with everyone. 338 edge project soon to be posted.

    It isn't a hide saver! This is the V-Max at work!
    Kevin, I'd say yes it is legal. What ever works is legal.
    Buffalobob, Life ain't fair this coyote just found that out.
    Load data can be PM to you.
