Re: What's your caliber of choice, for coyotes?

When I first started hunt'n yotes my baby was a .243. Now it is a .25-06 with the 87 gr TNT's if I'm using a bolt gun. I have an AR from Oly that is a .25 WSSM with 100 gr NBT's that is winning my heart for Yotes to Mule Deer. I'm now also playing with an AR in 6x45 with 70 gr NBT's but haven't had the chance to connect on a yote with it yet.

My 12 guage for sure with a tube full of Dead Coyote, with my rifle caliber being a 6x47 Lapua with a 10 twist shooting either the 70 grain Noslers or 74 grain Precision Ballistic FB bullet.

Typically I use my RRA 18" predator pursuit with a 50 gr nosler. I did shoot one this year with my Encore during Muzzle loading season. He was scratching fleas in my food plot. 50 cal muzzle loader at 50 yds was pretty impressive. I actually have that one on video! Typically though my AR is my go to If song dogs are on the agenda!

Re: What's your caliber of choice, for coyotes?

Got some realy cool news for all of you who were teasing me about using my 300wby, and my 270wsm for coyotes. I got to thinkin about it, and I have/had a 338 win mag that Ive never even shot. Well it just so happens that the guy I traded my only small bore, a 223wssm, to needed a 338. So now I just traded my only Browning, a 338, to him to get my Win 223wssm back.
So My Winchester collection grew back to a reasonable comfort level, and now I have a small bore again so you guys dont tease me for turning coyotes into a crimson vapor with my big ones.
HA! Now all I have to do is show some restraint and not push it to or past 4600fps. Thats gonna be hard for me, but I cant afford a new barrel yet, so Ill have to settle for a more reasonable speed.....for now

I guess I need to find it. I filmed it my self so you don't really see the shot. He's coming, he hangs out, scratches the fleas. Camera Pause for shot (couldn't do both) and then the after effects. How does one go posting videos? I also have one called "So you think you want to date my daughter" It is me shooting watermelons at 400yds. I made it right before my daughter was born. It's kind of like that song "Cleaning this Gun" Pretty darn funny.
