I shot this coyote couple months ago with my 300 RUM and the 210g VLD. I let my friend have the first shot with my .222 rem. He was 250 yards at first, and my buddy shot just under his stomach. I had my 300 already and as soon as he took off, I unleashed the 210g VLD @3000fps. I lead him a ways and to my surprise heard the whop. I knew I hit him a little far behind becuz he was up there spinning circles. By the time I got another shell loaded, with the length at 3.8" I have to single shot these bad boys, he was already dead. The exit hole was about 4-5 inches around.
