    What is your predator round?

    We have shooting on a cull permit here in New South Wales with the 204. Works well on our big english foxes, and ok on kangaroos if you neck or brain them.

    I haven't shot much with the 22-250, what bullets do you use to keep from tearing up a coyote?

    I just want the coyotes gone so mostly I use 55gr 243wssm, also 52 gr Amax fron 22-250. 22-250 doesn't have the range of 243wssm. Neighbor took a coyote chasing three does with his 7mm 150gr and his grandson killed a coyote chasing two does. I only know of two coyotes left around my place and they have been to school. I know I have missed both on at least one ocassion. I need a new trick. That is one reason I am using the longe range predator gun, the 243wssm. BTW if I see one from my house he will get the 7mm 168 Berger, even more range.

    130 grain Barnes ttsx out of my .270 seems to do the trick. I also like a gold tip 5575 tipped with a G5 Montek.

    95gr. v-max out of my .264 DPMS. It will do half of the skinning for you though, and it doesn't do a very pretty job.

    For coyotes I use a 35 grain bullet in my .204 it's also super fun to shoot prairie dogs with.. Flips them up into the air.

    My favorite round for calling and not wrecking a bobcat if I see one is the 204 with the 45gr Hornady. It will exit a yote from most any angle, but won't blow up like a V-max or ballistic tip so the hide is salvagable. Kinda acts like a mini Partition in my experience.

    My favorite out of the feed truck, or for a place that will be yotes only is my 6mm Rem with 70gr ballistic tips over a max load of Superformance at 3824fps. It lets me shoot quickly without worrying about range out to 350yds and flat stomps yotes. Not a load for fox or cats, but a yote has enough mass to keep the bullet from exiting almost every time. Another I've had alot of sucess with is the 75gr V-max from a short barrelled 243 win, works like the 6mm load.

    I use 22-250 for coyotes. I just buy the winchester hollowpoint bullets off the walmart shelf, those bullets didn't blow the dog apart, just a nice little entrance hole and perfect pelt

    22-250 with 55gr Hornady Vmax is my first choice for yotes!

    .220 Ackley Swift @ 4100 fps. Does a number on them...or my .257 Wby Mag @4000. Don't really care about the pelts! The bigger hole, the better...

    .243 55 grain ballistic tip. for coyotes (pelts not worth much down here, so I don't care about damage!). Typically don't shoot bobcats, I trap them.
