    20180113_122355-1195x2124.jpg this morning i looked out behind the house and there was a coyote out in the back field so i grabbed my rifle and went upstairs. he was out in the field mouseing and not coming any closer and i could hold on him steady so i ranged him at 460 yards. when the gun went off he never moved.

    Remington 700 varmint bull barrel 22-250 with a Nikon 4-12 shooting Hornady 50 grain vmax. And I have a Blackhawk traversing and pivoting bipod on it but I was using a sandbag.

    22-250 is my fav caliber for yotes and those long bull barrels will reach out there I had a savage with a 26” bull barrel, distance wasn’t a problem but I hated to carry that thing very far

    So might disagree, a buddy of mine has taken five or six deer throughout the years with his 22-250 and dropped all but one in its tracks

    I talked to a guy in the gun shop yesterday that shoots a Browning x-bolt 6x24 Weaver 22-250 with 45 grain hornady superformance , and he said he has killed one at 600 yds.
