    Coyote hunting- favorite 30-30 loads-and coyote kill pics greatly accepted

    So I ended up with no meat in the freezer this deer season and have become enamored with the idea of hunting coyotes with my 30-30.
    I picked up a cotton-tail call and hope to see some action from it.

    What load have you-all found to be good for taking coyotes around 100 yds with your 30-30's?

    Any accurate round will work unless you are trying not to hurt the pelt then you are gonna need to reload some FMJ.

    Power-Shok Hollow Point 125 Grain @ 2570 fps would work well, I'd think.

    You're going to eat coyote?


    I'd eat a rat before a filthy coyote.



    I get 1.5" groups @ 100yds with a 170gr core-lokt. That should blow up a coyote pretty good.

    My std coyote load is the Sierra 110 gr HP over 32.5 gr of Reloader 7.
    Use the powder of your choice. 748, BL(c)-2, 3031, H335, 4198, Tac ...
    They all work. Just find an accurate load between 2400 and 2700 fps.
    The Sierra 110 HP really smacks them down. I have never had one limp off and
    never had one still breathing when I got there.
    The Hornady 110 SP, Speer 110 SP and Hornady 110 VMax are also very effective
    but harder to manage with the mag tube.

    Best is one in the chamber and one in the tube. They don't give you many chances for a second shot anyway?

    Hope you like hide damage!

    If you want less damage, reduced loads work over calling ranges pretty well. If you anticipate 100 yards or less all the time and you want good killing power with less hide damage, load to emulate a 32-20.

    If pelts are not important, use whatever your rifle likes for accuracy. Dad's only centerfire was a .30-30 336 and he used 170 core lokt for everything. He killed more coyotes than most of us could imagine. Second the motion for FMJs if you are going for the pelts. Good luck, Jack

    Shoot whatever load you use when you are hunting for freezer meat!

    Check your local game laws; FMJ are illegal to hunt with in KY
