Wink 204 Info

Northern Archer,

The 204 is probably the best coyote round ever invented.
I out performes the other favorites like the 22-250 and
does it with less powder. There are no exit holes which lets
you get max dollars for the pelts. Since I started using the
twenty cal guns like the 204, I have called in more doubles
and triples than I did before while using the bigger calibers.
Sight the gun in for 1 1/2 inches high at one hundred yards
and you will not have to aim off of fur out to 350 yards.
Do not shoot the 32 grain V- Max bullets for coyotes, you will
have problems with that bullet on coyotes. This info is based
on several hundred kills with the 204. I do coyote control work.

I have been looking at getting one for hunting coyotes also. Going to most likely buy an .204 barrel for my Encore and top it off with an nice scope along the way.

Have read on other forums while doing some reserch on this caliber that it doesn't make some clean kills, alot of wounded animals. I don't know at wha kind of disances these guys are shooting. Still haven't made and commitment as to what I'm going to buy.

Yote hunter: What kind of distances are you shooting? and what bullet are you using?

Up here in Ontario most of your shots will be inside of 100 yards with afew reaching out to 150 yards possibly 200 yards in some places but not alot. Have been looking at the .204 or the .223 for my gun. Used to use an .222 for them around the farm but going to give it and try all across our hunting lands this coming winter with my brother in-law and hunting partner.

Got an saying up here "the only good coyote is an dead one". And I live by it doesn't matter the season as along as I have a gun in my hands there is lead flying it's way.

i know at those diatance any yote you hit is going to a dead yote but i have herd to stay a away from the 32grn bullet so that woud leave 40 grn bullet unless you reload you'll be able to get your hands a 45 grain bullet

Talking 204 for coyotes

Northern Archer,
Sorry but just saw your post.
Our average shot at a coyote around here(Illinois)
is between 75 & 175 yards but we have killed them dead
at around 500 yards. The only problem with the 204 is the Hornady
32grain V-Max load. It was designed for prairie dogs and has a very
thin jacket. Shoot the 39 and 40 grain bullets in the 204 and you
will be happy.

MJewell,

in this area(Illinois). The only problem with the 204 is the Hornady 32 grain bullet. It was designed for prairie dogs and has too light a jacket for coyotes.
Use the Hornady 40grain v-max or the Federal 39grain sierra bullet load and you will not have any problems.
