What Caliber....
« on: October 23, 2017, 12:26:26 AM »
Just curious to see what caliber and bullet guys are using for fox and coyotes?   Me personally,  for fox I've been using the 17 hornet with Hornady factory 20 gr bullistic tips.  For coyotes I use A 204 with Hornady 40 gr bullistic tips.   Occasionally I'll use a 22-250 on coyotes with Hornady 50 gr bullistic tips.

I use the same as you....... 17 hornet with the same ammo as you and 204 with the same.
I was hunting coyotes last season and shot a coon with the 204.......almost cut it in half......
now carry a shotgun too.
