    The sun just barely reached noon from the shadows I see and you have already done all of that.

    Well, you had me all excited there for a minute. I thought (and was hoping) maybe you got into a mess of wolves! Looks like you got to have some fun anyway. I'm glad it stopped raining! Cinch

    thanks Len...

    I could use that envy smile for some of the guys posts I read too...

    Gotta get one of those.

    No, I didn't. The guy I had lined up wanted a lot more money to use "photographic" ink in his printer... LOL

    Scott, what bullet are you using. My new AR-15 will be in 6mm WSSM. Probably 95 grain Berger.

    I know you shoot quite a few coyotes in a year. Out of a 100 killed, how many are shot at ranges over 400 yards?

    Len,

    In the 243AI, I am using the 115 DTAC moly. It has a 1 in 8 twist and my new one coming from George will have a 1 in 7.75 twist. I am waiting on the new 111 DTAC with the polymer tip to come out. I am thinking of that or the 105 AMAX for my new build.

    What twist is your AR ?

    I think out of 100 coyotes shot, perhaps 35 would exceed the 400 yard mark. It varies so much here in Wyoming. The wind being the biggest factor.

    The 2 farthest kills this year on coyotes are 608 yards and 732 yards. Both ranged with the Leica 1200 CRF.

    let me know when your coming out and we will make plans.

    Scott.

    PS. I have a disk ready to send you
