This Backwoods Home magazine article is out of print I believe, but it's on line. This is a interesting on building a coyote rifle for hunting wild dogs etc.

Short but good read.
Enjoy

yes, its a good read! I coyote hunt and they are a problem here. I use Bait and my Tikka T-3 in .204 Ruger. it has a Leupold VX-3 4.5-14x40 Varmint Hunter's Scope on it. my best shot so far was about 425 yards and piled the coyote who had the misfortune of posing in front of the Tikka. I use Hornady V-Max 40 grain rounds for 'yotes. look at the speeds of it!

Muzzle:3900/1351 100yds:3482/1077

200yds:3103/855 300yds:2755/674 400:2433/526

500:2133/404
:mrgreen:
Hornady also makes a 24 grain screamer called the NTX that explodes in the animal. 4400 feet per second at the muzzle! I got a box and plan to try them on 'Yotes after deer season.
