    Castboolit Coyote

    Was out doing some woods bumming this morning with my Chiappa 1886 Ridgerunner in 45/70 and spied this female coyote creeping up the trail behind some Couse deer does with young ones and barked her to a stop at about 120 yards.




    When she turned and looked back at me at I dropped the hammer on a 405 grain powder coated RNFP on top of 45 grains of H4895 and caught her right above her left eye (last place I saw the crosshairs before the boom) and she folded at the shot.


    Shes my first coyote shooting cast and (not unexpectedly) the bullet sailed through the skull and thence to parts unknown without slowing down (.458 diameter hole straight through) leaving skull fractured like a smashed egg inside the skin.

    Normally I use a fast stepping varmint round out of a bolt action for coyotes but the Ridgrunner with a slow moving boxcar of a boolit acquitted itself nicely this morning.

    Excellent shooting, sir!
    Don’t you mean “rock bumming” instead of “woods bumming”?��

    Good going.
    5-6 more and you can make a mountain man coat.
