we KNOW .22 Hornet bowls over coyotes

at 100 yds. 45 grs, 2200 fps. we know two wound channels are better than one and we know wider wound channels are better than narrow ones. 9x21 split nose has all 3 advantages. 45 grs at 2200 fps, no more recoil than the makarov, 2 wound tracks, and the advantages of a hand in pocket start, which, for the average guy, is worth 2 shots, speed wise, compared to an iwb belt rig under a shirt. compared to a belt rig under a shirt, under a heavy winter coat, the hand in pocket start is worth 6-7 shots. :-) It's just stupid to give up that much of an advantage.

Again your giving an advantage to in the pocket carry that it doesn't really deserve. Are you always walking around with your hand in your [pocket? I can sweep a vest back and draw faster than I can stick my hand in my pocket and draw, and of course, I'm much faster than you.

Having shot plenty of coyotes with a hornet, bowls them over is not how Iíd describe it. A 223 is far more effective and it doesnít bowl them over either.

The only time Iíve bowled one over was with a .338

As far as the rest of the post...

you haven't shot many, you've been using 223 ball ammo or you're trying to reach 300+ yards with it. I've never had 223 softpoints fail to down them at less than 25-0 yds. I've only had one get back up again, too. He managed to flop and twist around, stagger, etc for maybe 20m, cause I missed with the first followup shot. Hornets does just as well on them at 100m as the 223 does at twice that far, ie, damned fine.

Never said it didnít drop them, 223 kills them very good. It doesnít bowl them over - big difference

I donít use ball for hunting, and I kill them a lot. Coyotes and predators are my favorite non big game hunts.

223 kills very effectively to 300 yds.

At 25 yards, 22 magnum will anchor them just fine.

Lately Iíve been using .300 blackout suppressed for coyotes and am very happy. Itís quiet enough that Iím getting doubles and the occasional triple.

You must have a lot of Coyote's in your area. We hear them a lot at night, but they are very wary during the day. I very rarely will catch one on a trail camera and only at night. I've seen them while hiking in the Wet Lands but they are gone in a flash. My Dog is always along and the scent may alert them also. What's strange is there's a lot of game on my land, Turkey's, Squirrel and Feral Cat's but I seldom see signs of a kill.

We got them around here. Rotten pests IMHO, destroy too much small livestock like calves sheep and goats at times. I've seen them try to get a at or get small dogs too.

I've not hunted them in years though.

We call them in. I use an old school mouth call, one of my friends has an electronic caller.

We have tons of them out here...
