300 RUM load for coyote

Hornady makes a 110 gr FMJ, and my manual shows a load for this bullet as low as 3400 fps. Any ideas how this would treat a coyote. Thanks

I have a 257 but I would rather take out my 300. I am concerned about the fur. If there isn't a load that will be OK on the hide, I'll have to switch rifles.

It all depends upon which half you want to preserve...

I think you're better off with the smaller caliber... if you want anything left of the coyote. I use a .223 with 55gr ballistic tips. I've considered getting a 25-06 for longer shots rather than using a .308. That's assuming you want the hide.

Sounds a bit like a load I have worked up for my .270win. 90gr Sierra HP going a bit under 3,600fps.

Rather than downloading it, why not go the other way. Nosler shows their 125gr BT going 3,800fps with some loads. ;)

LOL!

I was wondering if a solid copper bullet would be better?

Re: 300 RUM load for coyote

Get yourself a smaller caliber. I used my 7mm Rem. Mag and took some coyotes with it but it tended to either 1. blow a hole through them with little damage or 2. totally mangle them.
I have since then picked up a used 22-250 and it's a BLAST. Just got a 'yote this morning out the back window of my house when I was supposed to be leaving for work...
Gotta love being able to drag a roadkill deer out behind the house and bust 'em in your bathrobe and slippers!
