Did you buy this used? Anyway, I'd take a minute to find out what twist it is.

As far as I know, it was fresh off the line.

Plain old M193 ball (55 gr FMJ) is as good as anything out there for coyotes.

Ball ammo will do the job, just be sure to hunt responsibly. If you are hunting wide open areas they'll be fine. I hunt IL farm land and there's usually homes within a mile or two. The soft points will break up on impact whereas the ball ammo has a higher risk of ricochet. I use 55gr vmaxes in a 1:7 twist 16" barrel.

I have a dedicated AR varmint 20" 1-9 rifle. I use 60gr Sierra HP's and 55gr. Hornady V-max bullets. They work very well. I do load my own rounds.

I would not skin and case a coyote pelt for what they sell for. We can get $50 dollars bounty for the lower jaws. That is a much better deal. The 55 grs. expanding bullets work well in the AR-15. There is no hard fast rule on bullet weights and twist rates. You must shoot different loads in you rifle to find out what works.
