Default Defiantly not for coyotes 8mm Rem Mag

8mm RM project as it stands.
Still needs to be bedded, if necessary.
I'll zero it at 245 yards, that should give me an 8" target zone from 100 to 400 yards.
And of course, develop a load.
Looking to try Sierra 220's and Barnes TSX 200 gr.
Powder may be reloader 26, Magpro.


Homemade dead mule.


Burris 4 1/2 x 14 droptine scope.

Before

After

Factory take off stock and squishy recoil pad.
The claw sling.
120 factory shells and 100 brass.
So far all in I have under $800 into her.
Still need dies.

Sounds like a fun project; let us know how she shoots when you get those loads developed....I used to reload years ago, but turned over that equipment to my son who used to reload for me until recently; he has got so many rifles now to reload for it is too stressful to throw my two calibers into the mix....haha.....so I am now beginning to reload once again for myself. I had forgotten how enjoyable it was so am actually thankful he has become too busy for my reloading.....The Lord turns all things for the good for those who love Him....Romans 8:28 Amen

Oh go ahead and whack a couple of coyotes with it when you're done. You know you want to.

I shot a 6pt bull elk and a damn good black bear with the 8mm Rem Mag. Good cartridge
