Me and Ole "No Sneak" (my 338 Lapua) Broke our team record this evening for a LR yote. I was out glassing and found one mousing in a hayfield. I moved to a good vantage point on a small mound. ranged him with my Swaro laser guide, This is Swaro #4 a new replacement they sent me last week. It is by far the best one I have owned. I entered the wind, range, baro and temp in the pda. Dialed up 19.75 moa on the Nightforce. The 2 oclock wind at 3 mph cancelled out the spin drift. So no windage correction was made. Settled down prone for the shot, waited for him to go full broadside, exhale, hold,, and touched it off. I watched him disapear in the scope but he was gone... did I get him?? Then the WHACK!! made its way back to me. Yup, it was a hit.... 880 yards my longest shot to date on a yote..

Nice shot! Now give us some close-up pics on that rifle along with some specs.

Weatherby Mark V Stainless Action

Chambered in .338 Lapua Mag
Mcmillan A-5 pillar bedded
Weatherby mark V trigger tuned to 1 1/2 lb
Near 40 + MOA base NF rings
5.5-22x50 NXS with MLR

Rifle now has over 600 rounds down the tube, still using the first 100 pcs of brass I started with. Off the bipod prone it will shoot sub 1/2 moa at 1000 and beyond. Rifle was built by Joe Starnes of Conrad MT.

Nice stick! I'm seriously considering the McMillan A5 for my next build. I like the distribution of color on your stock. What are the percentages of your colors?

I can't say for sure on the mix. But it is Olive, gray and black. Probably like 70, 15, 15 or 80 , 10, 10.

Please report back with pictures. I am hunting coyotes with Big Sky near Belt in mid-Feb during the mating season. Using mostly coyote vocalizations.

Should be fun.
