I don' t know about the WSM' s in the Coyote. I have a Coyote in.223. I' m sure the accracy will improve if I use some fresh handloads or factory ammo. I was shooting some old reloads I loaded back in 1982.Just wanting to use them up. Even at that I was getting 1 1/4" - 1 1/2" groups. I do like the Coyote model. The bolt operates smoothly. The trigger was a little heavy. I had a friend do a trigger job on it. The trigger feels good now.The only thing is the weight of the rifle. It would get awful heavy if you had to carry it for any length of time.I think you would be happy with one.

Thanks for the info, I think these rifles would be great varminters and " beanfield guns" . Going to have put this purchase on hold though, picked up a new Ruger RSI. Thanks, NBH

Haven' t shot one, but I knwo that on the bigger ones, the barrels don' t last a great long time due to the vvelocity and psi of the loads moving through them.
