Cool.

Sometimes I am capable of pulling off the long shot.......   Sadly, sometimes I am also capable of completely muffing the gimme shot......

SWEET!!! 

I've never had a 22-250 I felt I could do that with.  For the CVCA tournaments I switched to the 6mm Rem and busted a few out around 500.  Felt like I had won the lotto on the first one.

Good job - now get a camera and show us some pics.  Love seeing winter coyotes in red snow.
He asked, Do you ever give a short simple answer?  I replied, "Nope."

Impressive!  :yike: :yike: I would like to see what that coyote slayer looks like.  I think the 22-250 has a little bit of majic in it, one of my favorite cartridges.
