I always wanted to hunt coyotes and have all of the gear. Some of it 20 years old. I just reloaded my 22-250. Haven't done any reloading in some years.
Always amazed at one tiny grain of powder is either too little or too much.
I will be hunting the sagebrush in Eastern Washington, but at some point find some ground hogs. Unlikely until I find private land where I can get permission.

Welcome to the board! Glad to have you aboard. With your 22-250 you should be good to go for coyotes. There are some guys here on the board that are from your corner of the country.
I have bee told that here is a lot ground squirrels out there. Could possibly be that a 17 HMR or 17WSM is in your future. I will be looking forward to your posts.

Welcome and I hope you enjoy the company here. Now you can look forward to some fun times outdoors.

The only part of eastern Wa. I've lived in was Bridgeport Wa. area when I worked at Chief Joseph Dam in the mid 70's. Coyotes were plentiful around there but no ground squirrels. Although I did see a few rock chucks. Mostly on Govt. land so no hunting.

1 grain?? Ah just throw caution to the wind, get your last single edge razor blade out, optical comparator and unceremoniously chop that sucker in half. If that smallie ruins your mix, maybe get some precision sieves?
With tongue removed from my cheek, Welcome. Retirement? I highly recommend it.
