A 250 gr 9.3 TSX @2700 fps is pretty hard on a fox also.
Yup. The temorary cavity a large cal round (FMJ or round that doesn't expand) creates on a coyote from it's forces is much greater than what any .22 HP round can do and does. That is why you often see guys going to a .243. Higher % of DRT.
Aside from hunting, another interesting thing in the video westlicffe posted is the doctor that has dealt with many gunshot wound patients mentioned that HP's shot out of a handgun often stop short where he says if they had used a non-HP it is likely the guys shot would have been much more severly wounded, or have been killed due to penetration of vitals. "6 out of every 7 people shot with handguns survive".
