What bullet in the .223 are you using? I reload with Hornady's SPXP in 50g. I have never had a pass through. Just dead dogs.

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

My last coyote was put down with a 375 H&H with a 300 gr. Swift A-Frame. Since it was the rifle that I had in my hands at the time it was an easy choice. I usually go after larger predators and coyotes, if they show up, just get shot with what I've got at the time.

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

Thanks Gary,
You right, that does sound like a lot of work. I have a Lee Turrett Press? Will those Dies work in there, or will I need a second press? I guess I can look to see if Lee makes those dies as well?
By the way. How did your Coyote hunt go? Sounds like you have some pretty productive lands to hunt. That is great. I only have some abandond gravel pits right up the road from me. My neighbor has lived out here since the late 30's, and shot several hundred Fox, as well as Coyotes from the pits. He, his Father, and his Grandfather ran trap lines thru my land, and down to the south of me for a mile or more, and then to the west. I go have coffee with him, and listen and learn from his stories. Got to love first hand history, and stories of calling in fox with his mouse squeeker (lips) during deer season from his blind, just to watch him look around for the mouse! I'm going over there this morning to talk rifles, and see if he would be interested in helping me build one. I'm sure he will.
Have a grat day, Mike

17 Remington with 27.5gr Hammett bullets, it's kinda like the yotes just got hit with a lightning bolt so far all bang flops.

Of the shelf calibers gotta love a 22-250, shot many with the 85gr NBT from my 25-06 while they would die it wasn't pretty the 120gr bullets seemed to work better without so much canage. Later,

Kirk

I've got a 6mm-250 that does very nicely w/ Hornady 75 gr HPs and a 257 AI that shoots 75 gr VMaxes as well as 100 gr Speer HPs for heavier varmints.

Watch your backdrop and ricochets.
