Although it's odd, they won't hesitate to call me to come kill a water moccasin in their yard for them, but somehow a firearm terrifies them.

    Should have used the AR. The heck with the liberal neighbor. If you're good past your lot line, I'd prone out at the edge of it and let loose. I've got some pretty screwy neighbors myself. Used to complain about my shooting all the time, even though I'm completely legal and shooting in the opposite direction of their property. I just quit worrying about it and started regularly setting off large quantities of home made "Tannerite." Haven't heard a peep out of them in awhile, come to think of it.

    Sounds like a 22 Hornet is what you need around there. Less than a 223, but more omph than the 22 mag.
    I have confidence in you, you will get him next time.

    Sounds like a good reason to invest in a suppressor.

    Those are usually illegal for anyone but animal control to use on animals.

    However, a web search on "whisper rifle loads" and "cat sneeze loads" should turn up some interesting leads for people who handload and are willing to spring for the right rifles. Best (widest variety of chamberings) can be found in the Thompson Center firearms:

    Back when I was researching this question, SKS was making special barrels for the Encore.

    It depends on where you live.

    No more talk about illegal suppressors such as coke bottles. Discussion of illegal activities will result in infractions.

    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    There is always the backup plan. First, shoot the neighbor, then the coyote. You are welcome for this sage advice.

    Absolutely not true, and in some cases, even if not legal for game animals, it's ok for varmints. As usual, everbuddy check yer local laws.

    Hehe, Found this Hunting with suppressors. Thanks for the initiative HotGuns.

    I once shot a coyote running away at @50 yards with my .223. The 55 grn soft point hit right in the back of the head (So I got lucky!). I could not find any evidence of an exit wound, not even inside the mouth. Then I understood why the .223 wasn't legal for deer.

    Great varmit caliber, but that's about all with the bullets of that time.

    Wrt deer, gotta use the right bullet for the job. The 69+ gr bullets work fine for deer. Don't use varmint ammo on big game. .223 is legal in many places for deer.

    I took 4 deer last year with my AR using 55gr Winchester Silvertips. The only one that didn't drop made it about 50 yards before keeling over. The farthest one was a pretty large Whitetail doe somewhere between 200-300 yards. Dropped like a rock with one shot. As with anything, shot placement is key.

    I've seen deer shot with a .300 WBY Mag that kept right on running because the guy didn't make a solid hit. Ammo was too expensive, so he only bore sighted it.

    Well, well. "Times are a-changing."

    Alaska was definitely illegal, back when I was actively hunting. Must have been Murkowski behind the change.
