If you don't know the ballistics of your rifle you should not even be hunting with it. Always know what is around you first before you fire any gun.

Re: 7 mag for coyotes

where does the bullet go after shooting a deer,,,,
my nearest neighbor is 12 miles away, the next neighbor 25 miles where i hunt,,
maybe in an urban area, then a 12 gauge and 00 buck is handy

A 7 mag with a 140 grain bullet at 3116 fps if I shoot level from my shoulder
which is 58 inches the bullet will hit the ground at 620 yards.
Now after your bullet went through an animal the bullet will be going much slower so it will not get to 620 yards either.
Now if you are in heavy wooded area I bet your bullet will never get out of the woods before hitting a tree.
And if you stand on a 20 foot ladder your bullet will still hit the gound at 1000 yards

If you are shooting a 50 BMG you can aim at either one of them houses if you can even see them and that bullet will never get 1/6 th of the way there.
The most very long shots for our best snipers is only 1 1/2 miles which is 2640 yards.

Re: 7 mag for coyotes

Its just I have been in the woods and heard bullts fly by and hit a tree scard the blank out of me. And I sean blaze orange all around me after sun up. Knowing that pepleo are out with 300 rum's 7mm rem mag's and so on and only 100 yards away who are not in my party just is'nt a good thing. I dont hunt there any more. But yes there are pepleo out there who are smart enought but not all of them. Thats all I am saying just be carfull.

I'm with CVA54, a good friend of mine was watching a buck @150yds +- and a guy directly inline with him and the deer @ 400yds. The guy fired and missed and my buddy heard the bullet zip by. The guy shot again and finaly hit the deer(in the back leg). My buddy had to shoot a couple rounds into the air before the other guy even knew he was there, my buddy was wearing an orange jacket and hat while standing upright in the open(at first, before he had to hit the ground.

My point is that most of us on this site are a bit more responsible hunters than this guy was, but just make sure your not "that guy" if your using something that's gonna throw lead that far. Other than that, the only reason I can see not to use the 7mag is the fact that it's kinda spendy to shoot. The fun factor cancels that even that out most of the time.

The hillside!

Good point, but generally I'm hunting them in canyons and mountains where there's a good backstop for the bullet. If I am out on the flats, there's miles and miles of wheatfields, with nobody out there.
