Would like to get as many opinions on using .22lr for coyotes. What bullet would be best as well?

Thanks guys,

I have never shot a yote with a 22, but if I were to use one for hunting it would be a semi auto 10/22, Marlin 60, or the like with CCI Velocitors....I would be shooting for a one shot kill but would keep shooting until I couldnt see it anymore.

223 would work better.

Looking at using the 22 for 50 yards or so and in. Most of the country around here is thick, so shooting much farther would be hard anyway. Looking to preserve as much of the pelt as possible.

The Stingers right now are my 1st choice for ammo. Was hoping that some of you guys had used a .22lr for coyotes.

Thanks for the replies,

Steve

Re: .22lr opinions wanted

I have killed a Coyote with a 10/22 when I was a lot younger and did not even think twice about it. It was at a 100 yards and you would of thought I hit it with a big bore rifle the whole point is shot placement a .22 lr is more than capable of killing a yote at 100 yards the biggest question is are you capible. The most important thing in my book is making a quick kill and not making the animal suffer. I don't sell or save the hides so I use my .270 wsm mostly just for the practice for deer and elk season. I was using just some bulk ammo that I bought at a Walmart nothing special but, if I were to go today with my .22lr I would use cci they seem to be most consistant. Hope this helps.

I've killed many coyotes with a 10/22 as far as bullet's go I've used rem. golden bullet and cci stingers. As long as there hollow points and your gun likes them no problem. Head shots preferred

Stingers will work but placement is key. Headshots between the eye and ear willl be best but heart/lung will also work but probably wil entail soem tracking as the 22LR does not have enough energy to reliably put a Coyote down right away.
At that range a 12ga w/#4 buck might be a better choice.
