A .308 isn't what most people would call a big bore gun. However when you are hunting coyote one might consider the .308 a bit much. Since I have to run a .308 for a while (only have one gun) Pelt damage is a concern. I have some 150 grain FMJ that are running at 2820 FPS. Is this as good as it gets or is there another .308 round that will do less pelt damage. Ultimately I will get myself a more pelt friendly coyote gun but for now I gotta run what I got.
