    hahaha I can about imagine. I am kinda torn on the situation. One side of me doesn't really give a rip if I destroy them or not, just want to shoot as many of them as I can. On the other hand, I figure if I am going to be shooting them, I may as well be making a couple bucks here and there on the hides. Also, I would like to tan a couple of them. They're pretty cool lookin things when they are tanned. Who knows. Probably be a few months before I can gather up enough scratch to buy a 22-250 I would like, so I am sure I will get to experience what the 270 will do before hand. haha

    Kinda what I thought would happen.

    So since this is my own thread, this gives me the right to hijack it, right? hahaha I can always start another thread if I need to.

    I am thinking about a 223 rem so that I could use it as a good "practicing" rifle but also use it coyotes. I really like 22-250's also, but I fear that if I start using that for a lot of "practice" rounds, that I would burn out the barrel so much faster than a 223. I know that the 223's ballistics aren't quite what a 22-250's are, but I think it would be a good "everyday rifle" that I could use for anything from practice rounds to varminting to coyote/predator hunting. Anybody care to elaborate or talk me into something one way or another? If was planning on just using it only when I was coyote hunting, I would be more swayed toward a 22-250, but if I want to shoot a good amount of rounds through it, I am thinking a 223 would be a great gun.

    Re: 270win for coyotes

    I think you need to first ask yourself if you are going to save the pelt(s) or not. Many guys are just doing predator control and not interested in retaining the hides - just helping out a land owner and getting in some field time. If that fits your situation then do not monkey with varmint loads in a big game rifle. My 130gr load is very distructive on coyotes leaving melon size exit holes. I have no reason to believe a lighter weight bullet would not exit unless it was loaded down to 2,400 fps or so. A max load 130gr or 87gr (or whatever) 270 load is way over the top for collecting pelts. Bottom line, bring a half dozen garbage/leaf bags with you when you go coyote hunting with a 270 Win.
