Thank you TRBLSHTR!

This is a Winchester M70 that I built, set-up as a single shot, and now chambered in a 30-284....

Suz,

I took the truck to the car wash and got all that nasty blood cleaned out of it...

I keep my long-range rifles set to hit point of aim at 600 yds. and have drop tables made in 50 yd. increments out to 1,200 yds.. All ya gotta do is range it, dial it in and pull the trigger....

That takes care of gravity but there is that little variable called wind that isn't so little at those ranges. My hat is off to you for mastering that skill.

Well done DS...definitely a mangy looking mongrel dog mate. Shooting at that range is something that is way beyond my capability, especially at a target that small...I'm surprised you could even see it out that far mate.

That is one sweet looking rifle...why single shot, not that there is anything wrong with a single shot...would just make backup shots a little slower, if one is needed.

slimjim - wind is the easy part but, it was dead calm when the shot was made....


Thank You Vince!

There were 3 coyotes that looked like they were "playing" in one spot and I'll admit that I just got lucky when I spotted them...

I changed a few things on this rifle, with the caliber being one of them...

Single shot? - I just prefer single shots. Being a retired Military and Law Enforcement Sniper, I have always set my guns up as a single shot...

Here is a little more information -


ACTION: Winchester M70 / blue printed / set-up as a single shot...

BARREL: Lilja / 29" / 1.250" straight tube / 3-groove / D&T muzzle brake / 30 1/2" overall length with muzzle brake...

CALIBER: 30-284...

STOCK: McMillan Tooley MBR / pillar and glass bedded...

TRIGGER: Rifle Basix / adjusted down to 10 oz...

BASE and RINGS: EGW scope base / Burris Signature ZEE rings...

SCOPE: Viper Vortex 6.5X-20X-50mm with 30mm tube / fine duplex crosshairs...

BI-POD: Sinclair F-Class...

OTHER: Heavy duty firing pin spring / titanium firing pin / bushed bolt face...

SHOOTING CONDITIONS: clear sky's / 28 degrees / calm - no wind...

RANGE FINDER: Leica CRF 1600...


My preferred load for this gun was shooting Hornady's 155 gr A-MAX @ 3,400 fps...

I keep this rig sighted in to hit point of aim at 600 yds...

I made a drop table in 50 yd. increments, from 600 yds. out to 1,200 yds. - by shooting at each distance and then recording bullet drop...


I was sitting at my shooting bench this morning, getting ready to do a little shooting when I spotted 3 coyotes off in the distance. I changed positions on my shooting bench, ranged them, dialed the scope in, settled the crosshairs on ones front shoulder, gently squeezed the trigger, and the rest as they say is history...

Here is a picture of where I shot the coyote at. The tree in the middle of the picture, in the background, is where the coyotes were at. It looked like they were playing, the way they running around or chasing field rats or something else. I could not tell exactly what they were doing but, when all three sat down on their fanny, that gave me the few seconds I needed to dial the scope in and settle the crosshair exactly where I wanted it...

I had the camera sitting on my shooting bench when I took this picture, after shooting the coyote....

A single shot action is stiffer and can contribute to better accuracy. Even a little bit of improvement is of value at longer ranges. Sorry, stating the obvious.

Thanks DS, and Slim. Laughing

Being an "old" sniper, I can understand your like for single shots. I must admit, the TC Contender in 30.30 Win I used to have was a magnificent single shot pistol and had the accuracy potential to shoot out further than I was capable. Damn I wish I still had that gun...it was truly a magnificent firearm.
