Ended up going with savage axis .243 Winchester it was more in my price range too and my daughter will be able to use if decides to hunt deer.  Now gotta find a fox pro that doesn't cost arm and leg  :tup:
Spend another 100 bucks and put a Romney trigger in it. You'll thank me

If you were not already aware, Savage is offering a $100.00 rebate on all Axis models purchased before Dec 31.  Have until Jan 31 to submit form, then expect a long wait, but if you do everthing correct, you will get a $100.00 pre-paid VISA.

I got two of the 12FV rifles, one rebate is already back and spent, the second is approved and awaiting mailing.  It is by no means a fast process, but worth the wait.

Also, do it on-line instead of snail mail.  A large amount of mailed in rebates seem to be having issues.  Scan or take pictures of the required info and should be good to go.  If something is wrong, can call the number and they seem very willing to help correct any mistakes.
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

While that set up will certainly kill coyote, I think he wanted to save the hides.

I didn't pay attention to that part  :chuckle: this ammo definitely will not save hides :yike: . The last coyote i shot was 138 yards and my dad who was watching through his binos said he flipped.The blood spray on the grass was crazy.I just leave'em where they lay.

 After talking to anther member on  here,  he made a good point that allot of the coyotes in this area western wa aren't really in good shape as far as fur goes , most of the dogs I've seen are mangy looking and look like hell, so if I end up ruining the fur its not the end of the world.  I was just thinking it would be cool to save a hide or 2 and tan them just to say that i did.  I'm not really a big fur and hide guy but having a couple hanging in my man room would be cool. Now I gotta figure out what a good load is for .243 hunting coyote, I don't load my own rounds but could probably find someone too if needed.  I'd like a round that'll put them down but also not cut em half.

I use the same rifle but with 125 grain TNTs over 4064 pushing 3100 fps.  3" low at 200 yards, 11" at 300.

The area Ill be hunting this winter is pretty small so Im going with the versamax with a turkey choke. Im not concerned with the hides and most likely will just leave them lay.
