I have been using a Remington Sendero VSSF II in 220 swift and I love that gun. My new favorite is my 6.5 Grendel in an AR platform. The 100 gr ballistic tips do a number on the yotes.

my fave coyote loads are the 17 Rem and 22 Hornet... getting them in closer than 50 yards means that I do not have to have a hide punishing gun like the 257 and the 270... the coyotes this year have been no more than 25 yards from me when I have shot. the 17 and the hornet have been one shot DOA's. if they stop before the get 100 yards from me.. the 223 WSSM will start being employed and then if they stop before 200 yards, the 257 and the 270 will be employed.. but until such time.. the 17 and the hornet will be my go to rifles. I will be looking for a 22-250 and a 223 Rem over the winter to rebuild for next season. you just can not have enough varmint/predator guns. besides the 257 and the 270 are also awesome deer, and medium game rounds too.. so these can pull double duty. anything bigger will go for bigger game and the big bores are all 1,000 yard target guns.
good hunting this year to all.

the gunsmith is out to go play with the 'Yotes...
Hey how does the .270 load work, my nephew has one and he wants to use it when we go coyote hunting how is the pelt damage, and how com you did not use the 110 load???

CZ 527 in .204 Ruger, 26" barrel, 12" twist, Hornady 45 grain SP

It is a death ray, shoots flat, hits as hard as a .22-250 at long range, and you can see bullet strikes in your scope, so you can compensate and walk the bullets into your target.

No time for taking a rangefinder reading when you jump out of a pickup for a shot at a running coyote. The ability to spot bullet strikes in your scope cannot be underestimated.

But mostly it kills prairie dogs as we are overrun with those.
