I killed quite a few coyotes with a 788 in 22/250 back in the 70's but I just couldn't get past the quirky trigger. I found I could trade for a new 700 in 22/250 for only $50 more than a Timney trigger for my 788 so I moved up and killed a LOT more coyotes with the 700 and it's better trigger. Not more accurate just a smoother trigger pull which does make a difference at longer ranges.
Not to flog on the 788, they were a darned good $100 rifle back then. I'm not sure what the novelty is with them now but they've definately appreciated in value.
