View Full Version : The coyote gun has arrived!

02-28-2008, 08:09 PM
Decided to go out and treat myself today to a dog gun. Been wanting to get into coyote hunting for a while now and I've finally made the leap! Picked up a Remington 700 SPS Varmint in 223 and matched it with a Bushnell 6-18x50mm scope. I really wanted a 243 in this gun but couldn't find it. I even looked at other rifles hoping to get a 243, no dice. I'm sure this will work just fine!

NICE!!! (from a fellow Remington fan):TT:

Does that have the new Mark X trigger? If yes, how do you like it?

Trust me, the .223 will ruin any coyotes day. Get some 50 gr. ballistic tips, and you will be golden.

It does have the new trigger. I only put 1 box through it today so its hard to tell how it really feels quite yet, like it so far. The gun is a tank to carry any distance without a sling but I couldn't be happier with it!

Nice Rifle, I hope you get your chance at a couple coyotes this season.

I got one just about like her... in 204. You'll love the gun!!! Congrates!!

Thats a cool looking colour combo. I definitely think a bi-pod might be my next treat for shooting on the bench or when I gotta reach out and touch something at a few hundred yards!

AWESOME GUN SS! I will be in the market next year for something similar.

.....yeah I just got one in 22-250, they're nice....haven't shot anything with it yet.....:st:

I was out today at the range doing some plinking at 100yards. Got the scope tuned pretty good now, next time out I want to try some shooting at 200 and see how I fair.

looks great! I invested in a Kimber last year in a .223 as well and it is deadly out to 300yds. You shouldn't have any trouble at 200yds having 4" groups or less.

SSCarnage. I shoot a .243Win for Coyotes and actually if I could do it over, I would get a .223. Unless you want the gun to be used to shoot the occasional deer then the .223 is a more versatile pure varmint round as well as being cheaper to shoot
