more than enough I would not hesitate using my daughters ruger to take one out to 600 yrds. she has two loads for this gun the 75 gr vmax and the nossler 100 gr balistic tipI am relatively new to coyote hunting. I have a 25-06 Weatherby. Is this an adaquate size rifle for coyotes or should i get a smaller caliber? I live in SW Minnesota where the wind blows all the time!!!
At that close of distances, you won't notice any less wind drift with the 25-06 compared to the smaller fast 22's. At 200 or less, the .223 or other 22 centerfires will get yotes just as well as the 25-06. They would also be cheaper to shoot, quieter, and have less recoil. If you don't have a 22 CF, no need to buy one; the 25-06 will do the job. It probably will tear up more fur than the .204 or 223.......to each their own.200 yds or closer.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
