    Light recoil rifle for coyotes and antelope?

    As I mentioned before I'm replacing a 220 swift and I'm looking for a bolt gun 10-11 lbs with scope. :D

    Unfortunately, they don't come in .243. They are a great looking rifle.

    Light recoil rifle for coyotes and antelope?

    The 6.5 Creedmore is intriguing, but I have a feeling that in 10-20 years it's going to be no different and maybe worse than my 220 Swift and 7 STW that have very few ammo options which never seem to be in stock. Time will tell and that's a discussion for a different thread. I'm surprised...

    How does the matte finish hold up on the Predator Max? All of my older blued rifles have spots where the finish has rubbed through.

    Light recoil rifle for coyotes and antelope?

    Thanks again. Right now I'm thinking it's going to be hard to beat the 243 as far as availability and recoil. I'm not too recoil adverse, but this is replacing a 11lb 220 swift which is a total pleasure to shoot. Which of the Savages in the 9-10 lb range is the best shooter?

    Light recoil rifle for coyotes and antelope?

    Thanks all. I should have mentioned that my budget is $2000 tops for the rifle and scope.

    Light recoil rifle for coyotes and antelope?

    I think 9.25 is actually the twist rate for the LRP. Savage lists 11 lbs on their website. That gets heavy after a few hours of walking. I do like the 12 series.

    Light recoil rifle for coyotes and antelope?

    What rifle would you guys suggest for a light recoil gun good for coyotes and antelope at up to 500 yards? I want something in the 10-11 lb range including scope. I really would prefer stainless also. As far as caliber I'm liking the 243, but I'm open to any caliber with great factory ammo...

    Best rifle case for the money.

    Pelican's are great but I would save my money and use it towards more important priorities. Quite a few good cases out there. Look at the Plano 108420. $115 shipped on Amazon.
