    Just wondering what you were using for your varmint set up. I'm bored so I thought I'd get some conversation started. I'm shooting a 6mm Rem in a 722 Rem. rifle with 75 grain Sierra HP. It does nice work, I'll post some pics. What do ya got?

    4570, it is the ole 1895 with 22" barrel, Skinner peep on the back with his black blade on the front. Shooting Federals Fusion 300grainers, Stoney Point(I think)bipod sticks for steadying my aim, sitting/kneeling height.

    This thing has a trajectory like a four year old throwing a volkswagon, so I don't have to worry about missing the coyote and hearing about someone dying in the next county:D Like you might with some of these crazy calibers.

    I'll eventually get my long range gun and this will be my "shotgun" for closer work and hopefully a mountain lion, but until then it is the main cannon and I love it.:tu
