coyotes: .223 or .308
 
what's better for coyotes; the .223 or the .308?

Redneck420 11-29-2012 03:15 PM

maybe the 30-30?

Either will put the down dead just fine. If you have a large coyote population problem, i would go with .223 (cost effective)

.233 hands down.

223 is more cost effective and smaller or no exit wound with proper bullet choice. Yotes are easy to kill.

250 yards and I. Bless softball sized hole in the chest of a tote with a 223.

What weapon do you have? Do you like it and can you shoot it well? You now have your answer.

Don't have any? The .223/5.56 will be easier to learn on. Go with one of them. Cheaper too. More fun, maybe not.

Either rifle will do for coyotes,as others have said 223 will be less costly to shoot along with less recoil.

A lot of yote hunting around here. Everyone uses .223/5.56.

If you have both, use the 223. If not, and you are looking for a gun to hunt coyotes as well as deer and the occasional hog, a 308 may be better for an all around hunting rifle. The only thing is you can really do some damage to a smaller animal with a 308 and a not so well placed shot.
