If I'm specifically hunting coyotes, I use my old Ruger 77 in 220 Swift. I know I'm good to 350 with it, and think that I'm good to 400. Out past that, I'm untested. I shoot the 55 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip, pushed by a near-max load of IMR4064 and CCI BR primers. The truth, as I remember it, is that only 2 coyotes have escaped me once I had the crosshairs on them. One I hit high in the leg and got him later in the week. The other was an outright complete miss at maybe 60 yards. I'm sure glad nobody was watching that fiasco. A shameful miss...
