I did not know wolf hunting was unrestricted in the East?
Where Anna Purna is they pay $50 bucks for coyotes.
The Quebec wolf and eastern coyote have interbred making for a larger, more aggressive coyote highbred. They are still considered coyotes. The only restrictions is for hunting over bait and at night. Bait sites must be logged w/ fish and game and night hunting is limited to a few winter months.

This was the most common 6.5 ammo found as logistical problems between 2- 6.5 cartridges, 3- 7.7 cartridges, rimmed, semi rimmed and rimless made it a nightmare.
Here is a quick comparison of U.S. .30-06 ball and 6.5x50 japanese cartridges at 100 yards. I won't bother w/ velosity at 100 yards, only energy.
.30-06 150gr ball 2030fpe @ 100 yards
Standard 6.5x50 139gr ball 1500fpe @100 yards
Reduced power 6.5x50 139gr ball 1160fpe @ 100 yards.
Some is true, some is just propaganda from the U.S. gov't at the time.
