Re: What bullets in .300RUM or .280AI for coyotes and minimal pelt damage?
you guys must have some serious pansy coyotes. I hit them with a 7stw with a 162gr. amax, blows a 6inch exit hole and still have some running up to 50-100yrds with chest hits???? I tried the normal coyote rounds, 22-250, 243, 204 etc and they always left me watching at least one or tow coyotes a year hitting the ground then jumping up and running 5-600yards further to the timber.
Of course I also shot a fox with a 22-250 shooting 50gr.ballistic tip's and it took one shot hit the ground then it too started running off and took a folow up shot.
I dont know who ever came up with the imaganary word of "Over Gunned"
