Hi guys,
I found a way to make use of extra scopes thanks to Gander Mountain messing me up. They put two cheap scopes on an 870 before a prostaff cut the mustard. I put a Burris 3x9 on an old .375 win big bore-what a difference-and better still is a cheap but good enough 2x7 rem scope that came along on a slug barrel for the 870. It seems perfect for the 39a that had been collecting dust for years. Now I can try coyote hunting all year and man-there's no shortage of those things just outside city limits. I would like to use my .243 but you can't this close to Milwaukee. I hope it is enough gun for a coyote. Are there any ideas on rounds?
Mike

Hi,
I thought it would be too light, but I had to ask. I wish it was in the mag, that would be legal. I am forced to use a rimfire around here. I know just where to go because I came across a mess of dens a few years ago. I could not believe how many there were. Some that I have seen deer hunting are so bold that they just trotted by me looking both ways but paying little attention to me. In camo and using scent and calls I thought I may get a close enough shot with the scope to put them down with the .22. I sure don't want to spend a bunch on a new gun. I have 20 ga. 870 rifled with a nikon and Hornady rounds that they claim are good to 200yrds. What would be better?
Mike
