Re: Recommended Foot Pounds to Kill Coyote

It sounds like that bullet may be your problem- maybe hitting a rib and not going anywhere. According to the Berger website, that bullet is designed for varmints which are much smaller and lighter than coyotes.
That being said- I've been reading posts from folks using .17HMR on coyotes, and having good luck with them- especially with head shots.
If you've already got a good load for the Bergers, maybe try that?
