The local coyote hunting group had a little get together last night at which the topic of new guns for the upcoming coyote season came to the forefront. We have a couple of guys that shoot short 16" barrel ARs with 69 grain bullets, we have a couple of guys who use SKS's early in the season before the young yotes get educated. Yet when I stated that I was going to load up some of those 100 grain half jacketed bullets from Speer or Hornady and use a lever action 30-30 the peckerheads scorned me.
I'm thinking a 100 grain 30 cal bullet running 2800 fps ortsta knock the snot of any coyote out to a couple hundred yards. I'm going to go with iron sights to boot.
I've seen a hundred or more SKS kilt coyotes shot dead with those yank until they go bang triggers. Least wise I know when the hammer is gonna fall on my old thutty-thutty. I figure I'll just shoot out in front of them a bit and let them run into the bullet. I'll learn em to slight my cowboy gun
