    I shoot 40 gr VMax in my .222. A few years ago I shot two bobcats on the same day. They were both frontal shots at approx 70 yards. No exit holes on either shot. I was surprised they did not exit. I mainly hunt with my .221 Fireball with 40 gr VMax. I usually get big exit holes on broadside shots at coyotes, however, distance is usually under 50 yds. I haven't shot a bobcat with the .221.

    I have killed a bobcat (and only one) with a .204 and 40 grain Vmax. Didn't blow it up at all.

    Side view after it had ridden around in the truck for a while.



    .22 Mag Foxes. 30 grain Speer TNT

    Mine.


    A friends.


    A pair of foxes with a .204 and 40 grain Bergers. Hit low in the chest on the top one and it was wrecked a little bit.



    Hope that helps. I have seen plenty of coyotes fall to the combinations above, but I have seen plenty run off as well. If there is a chance you would want to shoot a coyote on the same hunt, I would use a .204 with 35 or 40 grain Bergers as a minimum.

    .17's seem to be the hot ticket, but I have no experience with them. I might build a .17/204 so I can find out....

    wow.

    Has anyone have any experience with a 55 grain Sierra game king (#1365). I read on a different website that when pushed to around 3400 fps, by a 22-250 it puts coyotes and bobcats down with authority and very little pelt damage.

    Absolutely musket man! I sold 10 coyotes for 20 dollars this year so pelt damage didn't matter!

    I don't shoot them for pelts (yotes/cats), so I'm more useful when it comes to what NOT to shoot them with.
