Re: coyote hunting
The question that comes to my mine is the expected range.
see my post "check it out". That rifle (in my post) is only good for 100 mts (110 yds).
After that I start using my 6.5x55.
So it becomes (IMHO) a matter of the right rifle and skills at the right range.
I learned a really ugly lesson once trying to pull off a 250mtr shot with a 30/30. it took me 30 minutes to find that gut shot roo. I swore right then and there that I would never do that again. It's a truely horrible feeling.
If you don't bleed you haven't bin trying
