If you are going to use the .204 on coyote DO NOT use Sierra bullets. I hit 4 in 1 day and never got a 1 of them. I knocked 1 of them down hard 3 time and he still got away. I hit 1 with the .204 and then ran over him with my truck, he also got away. I called Sierra and they said their bullets were for lite varments and not for coyote. I have never shot a coyote with the Hornady bullets, and I know that they are alittle thicker jacketed, but from what I`ve seen on groundhogs, I don`t think that they are tough enough eather. From what I`m hearing the 35 gn. Bergers are the choice of coyote hunters useing the .204.

Also with the NEF rifles you can get different cal. barrels just like the Thompsons, and it cost alot less. Only bad thing is you have to send the reciever in for the new barrels to be fitted to it.
