The Winchester load is excellent on Coyote.
Hornady VX is also pretty good.
Best is .45-70 Goverenment :) Punch holes big enough you can see daylight through.
Most .223 hollow point, expanding point fodder is good enough... Coyotes are thin skinned - but tough, and most these loads go deep enough...
Hornady Urban Tap rounds - not good. They fragment too much unless you get a good side view shot... Quartering away from you is a shot you dont want to take. I severely wounded one that way. Had I used a different load it would have taken the animal clean... instead I felt bad for almost a week.
