  If I wasn't concerned about hides, I wouldn't leave the 250 or swift at home. ;)


I like my 204 but feel the same way.   :twocents:
I've hunted almost everyday of my life, the rest have been wasted.

If your 204 does not like the 40 grain bullets, try the 39 grain Sierra Blitzking. Several people have found that their rifles will shoot the 39 BK when the 40s were not shooting well. They shoot very well out of my 2 Savage 204s and are effective on sage rats and prairie dogs.   :chuckle:  I think that the Berger bullets are a better choice for coyotes as they have better penetration, especially if it hits a shoulder.
May you have a target rich environment!
