If it were just one, it would be a .223 or 6mm ARC on a 18” upper.

Build the rest of it to your liking.

What do you now have, and how and where are you hunting them? Up close and thick, a shotgun with 4`s, Mod or IC. Ambush, any rifle you have. I`ve killed them with a .22 semi auto, up to my 8x06 AI. My 250AI is a favorite tho.

6mm ARC, not much twitching or spinning dogs in this video. I'm convinced, and good on deer and hogs as well.

Damn, that's some good shooting. Sure makes the ARC look legit, too.


Shoot low Sheriff, they're riding shetlands.

AR in .223 for me. I used to shoot a tikka bolt in .223. it was ok. Just like easier follow-ups and the lightness of the AR. I mainly throw 50-55 vmaxes. In farm county around here the 22-250 is a bit much.

Years of killing coyotes, I've been through all manner of stuff.

For me, the a long, slippery, high BC .22 is where it's at. The .223 doesn't have the horsepower, but the .22 Creedmoor I've been using for a couple years now does. A 69gr Sierra TMK at 3550 works pretty well. Speed is nice, but the math is the math...wind makes the high BC stuff earn it's keep.

I like a heavier rifle, somewhere in the 10lb range. Much lighter and I have to give up things I don't want to, heavier and it's a pain. A FFP scope is not a negotiable item, and a tripod is pretty close to such.

I have finally transitioned every scoped rifle I own over to FFP, and don/t ever plan on going back. Different strokes for different folks...but for me there is no benefit to SFP.

If you plan to use the reticle for holdovers the FFP is a must. If you dial then a SFP is fine


A good conservative will give you the shirt off his back.

A good liberal will give you the shirt off someone else's back.

Moving targets and wind holds are yet more benefits to the FFP configuration.
