    Spikes upper and lower with an 18" SS white oak SPR profile barrel. Scope is a primary arms 4-14x, my usual load is a 69 or 77gr SMK.

    Either my Custom AR SPR 18" barrel, or my Mossberg 930 depending on location. One of these days I'll get one, just gotta keep trying.... ;-(

    My Coyote gun is a 204 ruger with SS super match pacnor barrel, 16" carbon fiber free float, vortex viper 6-24x50, bushmaster lower with 2lb timney trigger. Seems to get the job done lately. 20161020_180532.jpg

    I move to Idaho last year from Oregon and we'll be starting some coyote hunting with in a couple weeks when my foot heals up.
    I'll be using a Remington 700 in 243 Winchester, it's got a Bell and Carlson stock topped with a Nikon 3X9 BDC scope.

    Remington Model 7 stainless .223. Some fancy scope, sling and a bipod. Light and handy.

    What do you figure your effective range is with your SPC? It has crossed my mind to use mine a couple times.

    I have no trouble hitting a steel gong at 300 yrds.
    My coyote shots average 40 yrds.

    We have some real open country here and I figured I'd be taking some long shots at coyotes. One guy was telling me saw one at 1000 yards at full tilt after the dog saw him.
    Both I have shot were 30-40 yards with my 10mm and my m39 marlin.

    I'll have to try that. I have a Martini-Henry that was worked over by WW Greener in 45-70 with a big heavy octagon barrel. It'd probably get it if it's hiding behind a couple of trees.

    Oh, I bet that does wack'em good. I used to have a Marlin 1895CB years back. It was a fine rifle, but I parted with it whilst downsizing the number of calibers. It does provide a lot of thump in a handy package though. :D

    I'm kinda thinking on turning my 1895 into another bolt gun for yotes. I have the AR in 556,well the wydle chamber actually.
    But deciding if I want a bolt gun in 223 or to go with a 6.5 creedmore.
    243?

    I was feeling a little inadequate in the short range department so I built a new 18" wylde upper vortex 3x mated up to a vortex strike fire. Mounted up to the same ol' lower. Heading to Xmas Valley tomorrow to try it out. Merry Christmas to me 20161222_202838.jpg
