Re: best bullet for coyotes in 25-06
Are you wanting to use the same bullet for both coyote and deer?
Overall, in my experience, the 25-06 tears them up pretty good, especially on broadside lung hits. I've used Nosler 85 BT's, Nosler 115 BT's, Hornady 117's, Sierra 117's, Barnes 100's and even some Sierra 90 HP's. They all tore up the pelt more than my 22-250 or 220 Swift did........one exception, the lighter bullets I mentioned usually didn't exit on straight on forward facing coyotes, so there was only an entrance wound.
I never did try anything lighter than the 85's.
