Using Hornady online ballistics Calculator. The Hornady 139 gr SST at 3300 is flatter shooting. I have the 168 Berger VLDs . I wonder they'll even open up on a coyote's little body.

Back in the day 'bout late 70' my buddy had a factory Rem 700 7mm Mag hitting 8 out of 10 rockchucks @ 500 yards or so using Sierra 120 gr bullets. That was the one day I remember. I couldn't touch 'em beyond 420 with my 270 cal 90gr hollow points.

I'm bettin the 168 berger will do in a yote.

Re: Best 7mm bullet for coyotes

Just finished up a shooting /testing session with Hornady 139gr sst in front of 67.5grs-70grs of Re#19. 69grs produced 3300 fps out of a 7mmWSM 26" Brux bbl. That will be tomorrows load for coyotes.
