Re: 7 mag for coyotes

I shot one at 75 yards with mine and a 168 berger once, I did hit it in the sholder but it removed a good 1/8th or better of the coyote!!!

Re: 7 mag for coyotes

I used my 7mm pretty much exclusively this past season for coyotes. There were a couple that were really messy, like gut shots with a 100gr HP. I used that Sierra Varminter 100gr for most of my kills (before I really understood the difference between .2 and .6 BC at 400yds) This year I'm going to use heavier hunting load. Much better for long range shots, and not nearly as explosive as match or varmint loads. I'm waiting to try out some 168gr bergers on a pup!

Also, most of my kills were no bloodier than my buddy's with his .243 (80gr NBT). And I didn't have any runners, he did.

I also have a new Remington 5R I want to try coyotes with this year. I think the 155gr scenar will do nicely!

I don't save the hides, just the tails so I don't worry about big holes.
If you use the point blank range of your bullet load you won't have to worry about hold over. this will keep you shooting inside a 6 inch circle to that point
in yards.

The 162 Amax made a mess at less than 100, I haven't shot any at longer ranges. I was thinking about the target VLDs with the heavier jacket. Might be worth a try.

Re: 7 mag for coyotes

I use my 7mm Rem Mag. in the spring when coyotes hang up, sit down, and bark at me from a far. I am shooting a 168 Berger over Reloader 22.

Re: 7 mag for coyotes

we shoot them to keep them away from our livestock.... NO SUCH THING AS OVERKILL! 7mm does some damage.. ive seen it first hand.. especially with B-tips.
