Do you reload your own coyote ammo or shoot factory? Whats your favorite load?

I shoot a 55gn Noser varmint ballistic with 23.4 gn of hodgons H322 and a cci primer. Love the load... shoots sub half in out of my remington tactical .223 and drops yotes dead in their tracks. Curious to hear what others shoot.

I use 85 grain Sierra BTHP out of a 243. Match prepped Winchester brass holds the 37 grains of Varget. 5 shot groups run about .6 to .75. The real world results are profoundly effective.

6mm284 85 grain HPBT SGK, 48.5 grains Hybrid 100V, GM210M primers, three shots at 100 at .550".

Way high in bangfloppability. Not as rough on fur as I expected, though I am sure a bad hit on bone is in my near future. This one seems to rough up antelope worse than it does coyotes.

.204 Ruger 40 grain Berger, 26.0 grains Varget, CCI 450 primers. Test and sight in was cold and gusty winds, shot .461". Haven't tested yet under better conditions for better or worse behavior. Shot 3 foxes and two coyotes with it and the results on coyotes are mixed. I'll take the blame for less than stellar hits and keep trying before I stick a fork in it.

Switch over to the 40 grain Ballistic Tips.

I've shot a bunch of coyotes with those out of a 22 Dasher at 4200.
