Re: Running Yote

I am shooting 50 grain Hornadys in my 250. Shoot the one that you have the most confidence in. I would like shoot heavier bullets than the 50's but my 250 has a 1 in 14 twist and shoots the lighter bullets better.

We all know a larger caliber won't make up for a bad shot!

Hard to beat a good dog for findin' and killin' them! Good job.

Re: Running Yote

Congrats on an upstate yote, to you and your girl. My first dog was a Lassie (1950) and the last 4 were "Rin Tin Tin" GSs. Mater of fact the first GS had Rin Tin Tin on his Pedigree print out from AKC. I feel your love for her! Ck your Pvt Messages.
Thanks

Re: Running Yote

I went to a 6.5 Grendel AR for this reason. I have shot a few coyotes with a 55 Gr. ballistic tip and had them run off a ways. The problem with coyote hunting is that you don't get that good set shot that you are always looking for. Sometimes those yotes seem to have a way of making you have to make an uncomfortable or hard shot. They seem to come into the place that you don't want them too. I shoot a 120 gr ballistic tip out of my Grendel and no matter where I hit them, they do not run far even if it is bad shot placement.

The 55 gr ballistic tip will do great if you hit them right which is what it comes down to. I don't care about pelts so I don't care about all the carnage it makes.

Re: Running Yote

I shot one with my ar 2 Decembers ago that came into about 25 yards. I was hunting heavily wooded area and he came from up wind and caught me way off guard. I leaned around the stump I was siting against and shot it left handed right in the chest. He dumped and got right back up and slowly stumbled off in the snow. It was right at dark and there was 6-12 inches of snow and saw lots of blood so I figured I'd let it bleed out and come back in the morning. I came back and tracked large blood pools for 400-500 yards when they just disappeared when it entered a large field never did find it..... Sorry for my long windedness but yea those buggers are tough.

Might want to try Superformance under a 60. Shoot em fast enough and they'll work out of a 14 twist unless, and I doubt, I got the special rifle.
