|Post subject:||.270 for WI yotes?|
I'm getting into predator hunting this year and will be calling for coyotes and fox. I've got a .270win MK77 and a Marlin 17HMR. Is the .270 w/100gr factor ammo too much for coyotes?(I would like to sell the hides) Can the 17HMR take down a coyote?
I realize I need an inbetween gun but its not in the budget.
Most shots "should" be in fields, ranges up too 300yards.
Should I shoot the .270 or try to coax 'em in close for the HMR and HOPEFULLY a head shot?
when I do buy a gun I was thinking about the H&R Varmint(thumbhole stock) in .223. Good choice or opt for repeater?

get the coyote within 150 yards and you will be able to shoot them with the 17hmr. A 270 will create too big of an hole, thus you will get severley docked on the price you get for the pelts because of the 2 large holes in it.
