use a 270 for most everything. reminds me of a quote (don't remember where from)
watch out for the man who only has 1 gun.. he likely knows how to use it..

If I had only 1, that would be the one I would pick too.

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

I picked up a Savage 25-06, I love the round and being a lefty was a caliber I like that they had at a great price.
I hunt for the Fur and a factory load from Barnes 90gr with 58.5 grains of powder = 3536 fps.

Most folks that hunt coyotes are taking long range shots, I like to as for me the longer the better, in the sense that if you miss (I don't) their not sure what happened, also if you have more than one yote around, you can take another shot.

As I said I hunt for the fur, being semi retired its a great outting and a fair income, as is any I don't have to answer to a boss.

Hope this helps.

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

6.5 Creedmoor hands down the best coyote cartridge i've used. I've used 6mm rem 7mm rem mag, 25-06, 280, 30-06, and the creed. Its by far the best one. As long as you dont mind blowing them apart its an excellent gun! The 140 A-max pill doesnt do them any favors! I'm going to try and load up some 95 V-max pills and see what i get for results.

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

I am fond of the 55gr V-Max in .223Rem out of my 16in SD bull barrel flat top AR-15. It hammers them. Tuck it in behind the elbow and BAM, D.R.T.

Not real fur friendly though.

I am awaiting the arrival of my 6.5 Grendel from Specialized Dynamics. I was amazed by the performance of the 120gr A-max on coyotes and can't wait to see what I can do with it.
