Re: Which rifle & Calibur??

I use a 204 and love it. It hits plenty hard to down a coyote, and has minimal recoil. There are many options for a good coyote gun. I use anywhere from a 17hmr, 22mag, 204, 243. All of these calibers have killed yotes and none are hard on the shoulder. I've downed yotes at 100 yards with a tricked out ruger 10/22. Very limited on distance but it is also fun to see how close you can bring one in. 10/22 has virtually no recoil.

Re: Which rifle & Calibur??

You might think about Remington M700 in .17 Rem; to duplicate Remington's very fine factory load, you'll need Remington 25gr HP, if you can't find those anymore, Hornady's works pretty good. The powder’.., VV N135 {22.8grs}… using a Remington 7 1/2 BR primer and Rem case. Use factory OAL and your in business, it should run spot on 4040 fps out of a 24' barrel. Accuracy can be off the chart, I mean superb! Recoil is all but zero, I’ve used this on yote’s out to 400 plus yards, but it best in the 300 yards range, and it’s deadly.
