We had trouble getting educated dogs to come all the way to our calls in wide open country. It was fun to watch so many different coyotes from a long ways away though. Anyway, this dog was one of 3 on our final stand that wouldn't come any closer. Having just switched scopes on my 22-250 and unable to get a solid range on all the snow I took an educated guess and pulled the trigger. We were pretty excited on impact! I had gotten a rock-jack ranged at 187 for helping guess, then after hiking down to the coyote I was able to turn around and range the rocks we had been sitting in at 511.

I picked up this rifle in trade during college. It is a sporterized military Mauser action with a 26" barrel and hand shaped Walnut stock. It was built by an old timer from Oregon City named Dean Enstad. I put a Bold trigger in it, then built up a handload of 55 gr. V-max that puts 5 in a dime at 100 :) It's one of my favorite rifles to shoot.

Helluva fine display of LR marksmanship,even with a 22/250 LOL,not hyjacking you but 511 yarsds i believe was my farthest ever shot to date taken this year with my 204,39 grain Blitz King at 3857 feet per second ,on a good sized male ,spun,run,dropped within 50 yards,drt.
