Ive been hunting coyotes for a year or so and ive been using a .17hmr. The .17 Doesnt kill them very quickly so ive decided to get a new gun. I cant decide between a .204 ruger or a .223 wsm. Which do you guys think is a better choice.
I have been shooting a .204 for two seasons and absolutely LOVE it. It has very light recoil and I have not left an exit wound yet. I've been shooting the hday 32gr V-max bullets and have killed yotes out to 300yds. The .204 is a dream for pelt salvage.
Hunting can be slow and frustrating if Mother Nature throws a warm hunting season at you. But things can take a drastic turn for the better with the onset of a cold snap. Whether you get snow or just a good, prolonged cold front, the hunting can improve on a dime. But cold whether can also make certain parts of the hunt more tedious. Here are some things to keep in mind when your prayers for cold weather finally pay off.
