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.

Big question is, did you kill them?

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.

Good shootin :tup:. I shot one recently at 530 yards with my .204. he went poof :chuckle:. It was a little uncomfortable to shoot that far but it felt good. Prarie dog shootin is another topic. Shot one once at over 650 yds :yike: rolled about 5 times :chuckle:.
Chukar are the worst birds to hunt.

I will always offer suggestions. don't expect a honey hole from me unless you give your 100% effort.

Way to stack them up, I love shooting coyotes way out there. Especially when they don't know your there!
