All guns are good for coyotes!
I agree. I've shot 'yotes with everything from a .22lr to a 30-06. Many of them have fallen to the 12 ga. during spring turkey season. 'Yotes are not hard to kill.....just hard to hit on the run. One reason light recoiling auto-loaders with hi-cap mags are so popular. In Wisconsin farmland, especially over frozen fields, I like using my .17HMR, as misses tend to fragment the bullet and the reduced range as compared to a higher powered centerfire, means less chance of a ricochet endin' up somewhere I don't want it too.
