Anyone switch to a larger caliber for coyotes?
All of the coyotes that I've shot have been running or at least, on the move. So, granted the shot placement hasn't been the best and I'm not blaming the weapon. Also, I've learned that coyotes are tough customers.
I had been using an AR15 and probably should've reloaded some heavier weight bullets, instead of the 45gr. JHP box ammo.
I am now using a .25-06 with 87gr. Nosler BT bullets and it is the "Hammer of Thor", when it comes to knock down power. Even if the shot placement is marginal, they go down and I have ample time to get a second shot...if it's needed.
Has anyone felt the need to switch to a larger caliber for coyotes?
Thank you, Bowhunter57
