Got a friend from Arkansas and another from Indiana out on the lease with me this weekend. The fella from Indiana toted along a custom rifle in 7mm Allen Mag. His bullet is a 180 Berger and it scoots along at about 3350.

The rifle is built on a Nesika Bay action and I'm not sure what the barrel is, but it's a rather light 30-incher. He's got a nice Nightforce on the rifle, the rings look like Badger.

That rifle will get it! He popped a coyote at a ranged 863 yards this morning. Slick. I don't think I'll ever want a rifle that takes twice the powder that a .30-06 does, though!

Beast of a round. That is the action used on Dakota rifles these days isn't it?

Beats me, kmon. I always thought Dakota had their very own action.

Found out the barrel on the 7 Allen Mag is a Lilja.

Ya know, that sounds like my buddy Scott Schillig. He sent me a pic of the coyote.

If Scott can see it, he can kill it. He was going to stop by my place at Bowie on the way back to East Texas but was running short on time. He'll be by in a couple of weeks.

Dang nice guy who is good at dang near everything.

Nice guy, isn't he?

He came to build docks on a couple of our mutual friends ponds/lakes. So far, East Texas monsoons have set him back quite a bit.

BTW, I heard that you made a nice 300 yd shot on the other one.

No, Dave, that was our friend from Arkansas. I shot a skunk the night before. I'm kinda proud of that skunk anyway, it was out in the field about 70 yards maybe and I had nothing to use as a rest. I dunno what different kinds of skunks there are around here, but he was one of the little ones. Not much to aim at!
