Re: Long Range - 243, 22-250 or a 260
PG85: BC is not specificly related to fur performance. The problem is that the heavier, high BC bullets tend to not be great fur bullets because they will, in all likelihood, exit. Your thinking on the TSX is sound though which is what I meant about a heavier constructed bullet. You need to either go with something fragile enough to fragment without exit or stout enough to not blow a large hole upon exit. The stouter bullets just won't put the coyotes down as quickly since they lack the shock of fragile bullets. Since you're hunting open country, that may not be as big of a deal for you as it would be for someone in brushy country that will have a harder time finding the coyotes if they run a ways. Coyotes take a lot of killing. FMJ's won't reliably kill coyotes. And, if a FMJ hits bone and tumbles, it may make a bigger exit than an expanding bullets. JMHO.
