My first actual post here...
I've decided to get into the long range hunting game and I recently moved to northern california. I'd like to get into coyote hunting
"always wanted to" and I'm thinking of trying in the desert south for them first. This brings me to my question- I'm hunting for pelts and I'm unsure of which caliber to base my next rifle on "probably a custom job." I know that it depends largely on terminal ballistics and isn't totally dependent on caliber, but I'd like an opinion on the highest caliber that would work well for this work. I realize that I may be calling them in to about 150 yards, but I would also like to be able to reach out to about 600 yards "all without destroying the pelt" if a target of opportunity presents itself.
Thanks in advance for your help!
P.S. I will be reloading so it can be a wildcat if anyone thinks of one.
