My seg is to go with an 150 grn. bullet ballistic tip would be good. Cass Creek makes a little hand held that is the best for cheap,spotlight is a must in the dark 2 mil cpu will do fine, if u cannot find a cass creek call just get a basic predtor call. Good luck and Good Huntin:D :D :D

Where is your coyote hunting going to take place. If it is anywhere near homes or ranches, you should try to find bullets that will break up on a miss. in other words ricochetes will be minimized.

That is one reason that a .22-250 is often safer then a .22 rimfire. A .22-250 shooting a fragile projectile is likely to break up on impact with any surface. Rimfires do not.

Go with the lightest and most fragile bulllets that you can get. Anything coming out of a .308 will do any coyote in.

All you have is maybe one day/night? One box of ammo is more than enough. You might try the 110-grain cartridges, but if they're not in stock, the 150s of whatever brand will do. Odds are your shots are gonna be inside a hundred yards, anyhow.

Make sure you're sighted in before you go.

There are many threads here about the "how to" on hunting coyotes. Do some searching. Whomever you're hunting with will be your best advisor, though.
