    Another 6mm Remington fan here.

    Mine is built on a T3 action, with a Lilja barrel.

    Topped with a Leupold 4-14 "long range", with an M1 elevation turret.

    This little T3 .223 account for dozens of song dogs.

    Most were taken with 52 grain SMKs.

    I built this AR as a purpose built predator rifle.

    I tend to walk a fair bit between sets, so I wanted it light and handy.

    It has a White Oak Precisionbarrel that has been turned down to a "pencil" profile, mostly Colt Defense internals, Geiessele trigger, and a carbon fiber for-end. It used to wear a 4x ACOG, but currently sports a 4-12 Leupold, with M1 turret, in a lightweight AERO mount. As should be expected with match components, it shoots tiny little groups, yet still is very light and a joy to pack in the field.

    Initial iteration:



    Current configuration:

    I do not own a 223. I just picked up a nice savage .22 mag with a heavy barrel to shoot ground hogs on the farm by my new place. There is a good amount of coyote as well. Can I use the 22 mag? Head shot? Vital shots?
    I have it set up with a bipod, big 50mm scope and a red light.
    Never hunted coyote , so any advise would help.

    It will work but ranges need kept short. If you'll take only head shots most any 30 or 40gr HP will do. I would avoid the polymer tip bullets, they have had splash hits on raccoons for me where the HP's have not. I'd go with something like the CCI 40gr JSP for heart shots. I would want to shoot them in open enough areas with the 22 mag that I could see them run for a bit, might not drop instantly without a perfect shot.

    A 223 or similar gun is much more versatile. It gives you more range, more effective shot options, and more damage and shock when it hits. If a new rifle wasn't in the cards though I'd still hunt with a 22 mag, I'd just be very careful with shot placement and stand selection.
