Default Coyotes in the Pasture!



I spotted three coyotes in the pasture next to my house about 12 this afternoon. I managed to get these two. Range was about 150 yards. I took the first one broadside in the shoulder and I figured that would be it as the other two would run. Well, coyote two came back for coyote one. That was a bad idea. Coyote two took one round in the chest and dropped without so much as a twitch.
The gun is a Rock River Predator, 20" (1:8 twist) with a Nikon 4.5-14 scope. The bullet was a Prvi Partizan 69 grain BTHP.

My scope has the mil-dot reticle. I started to go with the BDC but I figure the mil-dot will work better for me as the scope may end up on something else someday. I am really pleased with the scope, I just wish it had larger target style turrents.
