Coyote Rifle Suggestions

Postby MuleyHunterNV » Thu Nov 25, 2010 2:05 pm

I have been looking for a new coyote rifle and am just wondering what everyone else uses. I have heard that the Remington 700 VTR in .223 is a total monster. has anyone else heard that?

I was looking at the Remington VTR to. To me I think it's a great gun. Where do you plan on buying one from? I'm hoping Cabela's will have a sale on them before Christmas.

Here's my 'yote killer. My wife bought it for me last Christmas.

It's an M&P 15 5.56. Nothing TOO pimped out though. I wish I could afford top of the line optics, etc but man can it get expensive.

However, I'm not too sure that it's needed. I can hit 1.5 inch groupings at 200 yrds with this thing. Certainly lethal and one heck of a fun weapon to shoot.

Tikka or CZ both make a great rifle. My favorite for calling so far is my CZ 527 chambered in a .223. Its a short action and very accurate. IMO its perfect for calling. The Tikka is a cheaper version of a Sako IMO. It has a very smooth action and very accurate. Whatever you choose make sure it feels good in your hands and as with any weapon practice a lot with it.

What about the Thompson Center Venture in the 223? Are they as good as they say they are?

22-250 is my favorite varmint calibermI use a Remington 700 Sendaro SS fluted Heavy barrel topped with a Zeiss 6.5-20x44 scope.

I also have a bushmaster varminter in .223 and like it alot.

The vtr is supposed to be bad ***, but Ive heard its loud as crap. I just bought the rem 700 sps 308 with the 26" barrel. Im having the barrel cut back to 20" to make it more practical, but I love my gun! I shot 3 shots within a quarter straight out of the box at 100 yrds. little recoil and fairly cheap load. I am shooting the hornady 168gr a-max. They seem to do the trick, dropped an 180lb 8 pt while running at 150 yards last week.
