That is one fine (& accurate, as you say) rifle. Like many others, I really love the 223 caliber. You did good!!
Keep us posted on your future hunts &/or shooting results with it...

I am exited about building a light load for urban coyote hunting, and shooter John gave me tons of info on.
I did some playing with a light "gopher" load for my .223. I think some of the info also came from Shooter John.
11grs of Blue Dot with a 50 gr Hornady SPSX works very well in my Sako. The noise is much less than usual loads and the recoil is almost nothing. I have shot squirrels with this load but never a coyote.
Also loaded some 40gr Hornady V-Max with 11grs Blue Dot. Not as accurate as SPSX . Shot one coyote. Spin and dead right there.
Good luck. Will be looking for your results.
