Re: Minimizing Damage to Coyotes With 300 RUM

Yotes don't seem to hard to kill?

All the yotes I've killed have proven to be one of the toughest little critters on earth! I've tumbled a 12 ga deer slug through many coyotes and had them run off to die later. One ripped down the ribs opening a nice little 6"wide by 12" long hole down its back and it still managed to run 100 yards! I've seen yotes legs nearly removed with a 243 and the sucker lived for days running around with that leg just a floppin!

Just daying coyotes don't just fall over dead and give up. If you don't put a lot of retained energy into them they will and can go along ways. And pin whole punching them with a FMJ is sure medicine to looseing them.

    The domestic monometals would be the Nosler E-Tips, Hornady GMX's and Barnes TSX/TTSX's.

    GS makes some more spendy ones, but not sure you want to spend the $$$ on them for coyote hunting?

    They do have a non-expanding solid variety that will leave a very small hole.

    GS CUSTOM BULLETS - SP LONG RANGE BULLETS

    Lehigh also makes a similar bullet but their smallest is .338 cal

    to go to a lighter bullet your going to gain velocity and you sure don't want to do that if your trying to save pelts. Lighter and faster on small game is much more destructive than bigger and slower.

    Would your rifling handle a 240 smk?

    Being a non-expanding solid, I dont see them doing a lot of hide damage?

    Those things die hard. I once shot a yote from just over 100y with a ballistic tip from my .22-250. When it didn't fall and didn't run I proceeded to shoot it three more times before it finally fell over. Shure enough, I found three massive exit wounds in him. Of course it was so mange ridden that there was very little hair left on him.

    Bruce Willis could take lessons from them things.
