Here is my cheap Coyote rig it gets the job done. Quite well in fact.


Savage Axis .243 with the Bushnell 10x40 Elite



Shot the two rounds on the bottom right. Cold bore is never far off on this gun so far. Adjusted 40 clicks up shot again. (I took the time to level the rifle but didn't level the Target is why that hit left...My mistake) Shot a bit high of 10 inches. Returned to zero very nicely as you can see. The bottom group is under an inch. I'd say these rifles aren't too shabby. At least in .243 anyway. Also kudos to that Bushnell scope cheap but functional.

I was shooting Remington 75 Gr Accu tip Boat Tails. I have gotten similar results with 80 gr soft point cheap stuff but usually get an awful flier with the cheap ammo. I tried HSM 95 gr BTHP's and shot a group larger than my fist, don't know why but the rifle doesn't like that ammo at all.

All in all i am happy with the purchase so far. Especially for the money spent.

Anyways, had the day off so i figured id share the experience with you all. 


Just another photo with my 1" level

i have a 308 edge, and for the $$ they can't be beat. 200 for the rifle and 300 for the SS 10X, i gigged a groundhog at a shade over 600 with it.
