*help* coyote loads for 6.5x284

Im new to long range hunting and just got a Savage LRH 111 in 6.5x284. With it came a box of HSM 140 grain VLD. (Berger 140 gr VLD). With this ammo I've shot two coyotes. The first didnt do too much damage of only about a 2 inch hole. But the hole on the second coyote was a whopping 7 inches. I'd like a bullet that would be fur friendly but not too sure what to get. Maybe around the 100 gr to 120 gr area. Just something that isnt gonna take the shoulder out of a coyote. I'm looking to get money for the pelts and dont really want to use a different rifle cause im in love with this one! I can now also reload my own so any data or info would be greatly appreciated!

The target version of that bullet has a thicker jacket and won't expand much.

a controlled expansion type bullet like a Barnes Tipped Tripple shock works very well on coyotes and doesnt come apart and blow big holes. They are also very accurate

What do you guys think about Lapua 144gr FMJ. I see that their BC is .636. And fmj definately shouldnt punch much of a hole out.

itll definitley kill them, if your lapua is anything like mine its not really the ideal calling gun, mine is a little big, but it will definitley work
