My fall back would be the 80 gr Hornady fmj or the 90 gr Sierra fmjbt. Small hole in, small hole out. . But I've never used the light weight varmint bullets. The 80 grain TSX.would also be a bullet I would try.

I've shot coyotes with every weight bullet for the 243.( 60 gr to 100 gr) All of them do pelt damage. It isn't fur freindly! If you fur hunt I would look at a 223 or a 204.In AZ we arn't allowed FMJ bullets for hunting.

Re: Best 243 load for coyote

There are only so many questions that can be asked. And the info is relevant and current. .
I've seen too many pics of coyotes with their guts blown out to recommend some of the bullets advocated. But, and this is important. I'm after the hides and the fmjs have worked well for me. I don't mind one running off as from the reports plenty of guys get runners even with the fast expanding bullets.
But if someone has good success with the load they are using. Great I hope they keep using it.
At least with solids I have a good chance of making it thru the shoulder of a 140 lb wolf that's running at 100 yards. Tho for just wolf I would probably shoot a 100 gr soft point in the 243 .

No they don't. Posting even after you told them. The guy hasn't posted on the sight in almost 3 years.
