    Did a little calling in eastern WA last Sunday. Got this one to sneak up to about 230 yards. When I spotted her she busted us at the same time and took off away at about half speed. I clicked on 2.5 minutes elevation as I slid prone behind my 338 Lapua while Gabe tried to stop her with his mouth call but all she did was look over her shoulder and kept going away. I got the cross hairs just over her head and sent a 300 grain Sierra Match King down range at 2700 fps. The bullet hit just below the tail, totally gutting her. I watched the dust fly under and beyond the coyote, she seemed to continue running for a half second or so then piled up hard.
    Shot was 311 yards

    Yup! Looks like you're running the Seekin's bottom metel and rings as well.
    What load are you using for your 300 grainers?

    Nice shot..
    Another .338 Lapua coyote rifle, I'm going to have to re-think my varmint caliber choices.

    Yeah, but you don't have anywhere to shoot varmints at 300+ yards back there! Too many houses and trees!

    Notice, you can't even see ONE tree in that picture!!

    I figured I would step down to the Lapua, as the .338-.408 seems a bit much. Besides, the Lapua will be easier for you to carry when you take me hunting out there...:rolleyes:

    Still, it doesn't say much about the fur saving aspects of the round. :)

    Come on out! Just remember that I'm the guy that is really good at HUNTING for coyotes, not the guy that is really good at FINDING coyotes, unless I have no guns available! LOL!!:D
