Just Jawin At Camp / sled ride , the montana way
« Last post by D45/70 on March 03, 2019, 11:33:02 AM »
31 miles on the sled 14 sets -15* very little wind , and bright and sunny.
We saw a LOT of coyotes but we just could not get them to come in.

Did have one get about 500 yards and sit and laydown  bark and howl back.

We worked it for about 40 minutes, no closer. I was packing the 6 and finally planed a shot.

I'm about ready to shoot and the boy tried a rabbit sound AS soon as the sound hit the dog it JUMPED up and spun around and ran off. DANG I tried a 500 yard running shot but to no avail.

We see that a lot Bunny cries = hunters. There just a warning call to public land coyotes.

BUT after 14 sets we try every tool in our kit, time and time again we get the same reaction.

I think it's time to put that one away .OuchConfused

More then likely won't.
We worked up to the load I'm using with many different powder and bullet combos, and picked this one for accuracy and non temperature variance.
Kinda like going back down the hill looking for something we may have missed .

  :wink: Yeah on that, D.

Never been or seen Siberia in the winter or summer.
It was to cold for farther testing but we have about 8 other "Test" loads loaded.
Preliminary tests look like if I use the 55gr ballistic tips there going to need top speed to shoot the best.

Maybe you won't be able to slow them down and retain accuracy?

Ha ha, sorry dumb rabbit!  ;D Looks like that slower load just doesn't get it, though.

Montana looks like and must feel like Siberia in the winter. You would like our winters here in SE Iowa.

So, you still looking for a slower load?

6mm rem, 55 gr Ballistic tips, 26" barrel
Well We tried some "Slower" loads, same bullet different powder
"Big game"book speed around 3900 fps, to cold to mess with the Magnospeed.
No wind , for Mt, and -14* , 200 yards, prone in the snow.
First target is test with normal 4200 fps load .




Second is with the slower "Big game" powder.




Then there is a silly rabbit that came to a shooting range.




about 30 yards to the right ,right at the same range.

Your max loads were pretty high chamber pressure, D?
I would guess, no undo Pressure signs but listed at the very top end.
