If you really insist on using a 270, just use a good 130 grain ballistic tip bullet. The light bullets will slow down too quick and have too much wind drift, and a 270 and minimal pelt damage do not go together! I have not shot coyotes with a 270, but I have with a 25/06 and what you end up with, is not pretty (except that dead coyotes is a beautiful thing).:barf:
