Re: Good Low Velocity Bullet for Coyotes
ah Shucks...or guilty as charged, and I am semi bed ridden. Man, this knee replacement is the most painful I have ever experienced. Pain meds aren't working, half the time.
In the case of either choice, a relatively heavy for caliber big game bullet will more than likely steam through both sides...unless you hit substantial bone mass. No guarantees, pick your most accurate bullet and strive for precision placement. I wouldn't spend a lot of time working up a special load with a light bullet, light jacket and explosive performance. Who knows, maybe splash wounds? You don't need that grief, even if it could be guaranteed, which it can't be, so forget it; use what you got. And, don't outsmart yourself with a low velocity handload, same deal, a lot of work for the same amount of potential failures, only different failures, like, runners.
That's all you can hope for, 75% success and a few train wrecks if they happen to move on ya.
Good luck, LB
