Yeah, I think everyone hear has killed coyotes with a variety of weapons like bird shot, or even a bow, but the thread is 'caliber of choice'. In other words, what is your favorite caliber for yotes.

Hard to beat a good .243 for coyotes. I have an old Remington 700 .243 and have yet to have one run off after a hit.

Favorite would be 6mmAI shooting 70 grn Nosler ballistic tips or 95 grn Nosler CT's in the wind. My very close second in the favorite category is a 6 BR Improved shooting the 70 Noslers. For both I keep a few SMK 107 grn loaded when the dogs are running waaay out there.

I use both rifles depending on my mood and hunting conditions for predators.

A vanilla Remington model 700 VLS .22-.250. I use out of the box Hornady 50gr V-Max loads.

A custom made .243 Sako action with a 26" Lija barrel with a 1:12 twist. I normally am pushing 70gr @ 3500 fps.
