    I do not have a 7mm-08 but I do have a 308 which it is based on. I shoot at 500 yards all the time no problems with that 308 so I do not see any reason why a 7mm-08 would not work well with coyotes.

    Like 308 said above, I dont have the 7mm 08 either, but say it would reach out there on the coyotes. My .270 WIN does a nice fine job reaching out there on them!:D If your hunting them for the fur to sell and what not, I know the .243 in psp does a nice fine job reaching out there and not tearing them up so bad, (i'm 'vearin' off the org. thread now...):eek:

    I have a Remington 700 in 7mm-08 and love the round. Very accurate. I haven't hunted with it yet but do shoot steel pigs and 300 meters and steel rams at 500 meters with much success.

  5. The coyotes would object strenuously and that is about a good a recommendation as you can get.
