I've got a 22-250 but it won't group worth a crap! It's a Rossi breakover with a bull barrel and a cheap scope. I've tried several different types of ammo and nothing seems to group well for me.

My 204 is a Remington 700 and it's also got the bull barrel and with the flat fore-stock, so it weighs a ton and get's really heavy after luggin it around the woods for a while. I may start using this gun if I know I'm not gonna be humpin it to far.

The gun I've been using lately is my Ruger Ranch mini-14. It's light, durable and resonably accurate out to 100-150yds, I'm sure the gun will shoot 200yds plus, just not sure I can.

Here's a pic of the last yote I got with that Ruger Mini-14

Depending on the range, my votes for the 17hmr. I know there is usually alot of debate over it. There are some guys who have taken coyotes with it at 150 yards and others that say no way. After my personal experience today, im sold. Idk about 150 yards unless its from a great shooter but 100 yards i could see. My shot was around 30 yards and the amount of damage was suprising.

Note:cheap scope and poor groups. May be a correlation.

I shoot the hornady vmax. It's about $22 for a box of 20. That's $1.10 per shot....and if you are going through that many boxes of ammo to make it expensive, you are either putting up a lot of fur (great!), to which ammo price doesn't really matter at that point. Or you are missing a lot, and misses are wasted time/money out of any gun....

Now if we were talking about a 257 weatherby mag at $70/ox I could understand. Can't afford to sight those in....

If your not keeping there pelts use what ever weapon you have ammo for. My last few trips I been using a 300RUM. Good way to keep proficient with anything you have.
