What's your caliber of choice, for coyotes?

I've been using a .223, but have had several "runners" that I've had a hard time recoverying. So, I decided to go with a caliber that would have a little more knock-down power and purchased a Stevens .25-06. I'm still putting the reloading materials together, so I've not had a chance to shoot it at the range or hunt with it, yet. Based on ballistics, this rifle should be the "Hammer of Thor".

What's your caliber of choice, for hunting coyotes?

Thank you, Bowhunter57

    I was saving up for a Remington model 700 22-250 till i came across a deal i counted pass up. A Browning A-Bolt 300.wsm brand new for 500 dollars. I had it looked at and there is nothing wrong with it. So i just bought that and its coming in tomorrow. So currently i am shooting a 22LR Mossberg, and a 22LR Marlin for yotes as well as carrying a 12 gauge

    depends on if i'm out for fur or just to get rid of them. For fur I use a 22-250 and as an all around gun i'll use a 308.

    The 25-06 will be a nice flat shooting round for you. I'd pick up some match type ammo if you're going to try and keep fur. The lighter bullets tend to frag pretty easily and cause large holes.

    25-06 will deffinately drop them. If you want to keep fur shoot the heavier match bullets, but if you just want them dead the light weight hp will haul ass and put a sofball hole in them.

    Plain vanilla 243, not as popular as some calibers but, a good choice.

    Depends on what part of the country your living in but for me out here in the west
    hands down...257 Wby an 100 TSX's

    east coast say NC or Tenn....for me 221 Fireball(cause I like the cartridge,and normally have a LVSF within arms reach)but whatever I have in hand will usually do just fine
