    Nothing wrong with that picture brother. I also like the speer 130 gr. varmiter HP. for my .308 if you reload.
     
  3. I would say that the coyote that shows up is in deep trouble. 308 is a good all around caliber for KY.

    I've taken four Coyotes with my .308 Browning A-Bolt with a Nikon prostaff 3x9x40 m/m, using 150 grainers at distances from 80 to 300 yards.

    It aint the most fur friendly caliber you could choose....but if you are like me you dont save the pelts anyway. You wont have many spinners with a .308

    I asked this ? last month as I wanted to see if anyone was having any luck with the Hornady 110gr. Was really wanting to try them out on yotes but my rifle didnt shoot them well at all. Ive switched to the speer 130gr varminter and they shoot really well. How do the 110 gr do on yotes for you?

    I yote hunt with a .308 occasionally. I shoot 168 HPBT and was surprised they didn't tear up a cat very bad at all I did have it mounted and the taxidermist said he was surprised at how little the hide was toar up from it. I've thought of loading some 110 or 130 and trying them but just haven't made time to try it.

    i'm sure it is major over kill (no pun intended) but i shoot the hornady 150 gr super performance. Those things are deady. I never have to doubt if i will find my critter after a hit.
