CVC,
I had him made into a rug but haven't recieved it yet. Coyote /Predator hunting is by far my favorite thing to do.
Shot this Bobcat with my 22 mag.

308 for coyotes

We've got tons of cats here. We've got a huge cougar population since the libs voted out hound hunting. This cat was taken about 10 miles from my house. The guy on the right got a special hound permit to kill one. I know both of these guys.

Barnes makes a 130 gr in the Tipped TSX that is a great bullet, but may be a bit heavy for Coyotes and you'd pry have to load it yourself. I prefer a .223 or 6mm for coyotes around here.

We kill a lot of yotes with whatever we have. The biggest problem is finding a bullet that works without blowing them up. Will you be hunting where you have to worry about bullet travel after you hit, or miss the coyote. If you are alone in the wide open spaces I would consider a FMJ bullet. With a 308 a FMJ will surly kill them, if you stay out of the guts, without making a huge exit hole.

I use a 243 with 75 gr. ballistic tips and often blow them up if I don't hit bone, but I like that the bullet stops after I hit something.

A friend uses a 6mm with soft points and usually does qwite well.
