    Last week I shot a coyote at somewhere between 330-340 yards with my 7mm Dakota XP-100 using the 200 grain WC (MV--2706). He was moving through the area and I had to bark at him to get him to stop for a shot-Used Holland's ART reticle.
    Impact velocity was around 2350 fps. Hit him just behind the shoulder. I didn't get to him the following day as I wasn't going to save the hide (terrible case of mange), but was pleased to see a good exit wound on even coyote. I did not drop him on the spot, as he ran about 40-50 yards before he gave it up. This is the first coyote I have shot that I could see the exit wound and thought I would pass it on for those who are using 200 WC's.

    Thanks for your post on 200 gn wildcats.
    I was wondering how they would expand on light game at around 500 yards from a 7mm RUM in a rifle. Looks like they expand fine.
