300 BLK for Coyote
« on: March 26, 2018, 07:50:09 AM »
Was curious if anyone here uses/tried 300BLK for coyote. Was looking at reloading with Hornady 110g VMax. How bad is the fur damage?

I watched a few of videos on YouTube and only a couple commented on fur damage saying they had no exit wounds.

For coyotes you are better off with a .223 or .204 (my opinion).  I've killed 6 or 7 with my blackout using 125gr Nosler ballistic tips.  They leave a pretty good hole.  I'm not sure how a 110 V-max will work but I bet if you hit bone it could be messy.

If it gets it done ,use it.don't see any problem.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

For an AR platform cartridge for coyotes, I'd look elsewhere.  Unless most of your shooting is in more confined distances, it would just seem that the smaller bores would better serve you.  That said, I think that bullet selection is a bigtime factor in fur damage.  BTs and VMax are a bit on the sloppy side

If just wanting something new and different it would be a fun one to tinker with though  :tup:  and they make Lapua brass for it  :yike:

Yeah, I'm having an AR built and was looking at loads. So , yep I'm just tinkering with it. New toy and looking for ways to have fun with it. I usually use my .243 for coyotes.

Yep don't get me wrong.  If I had a 300 BLK, I would mag dump on a coyote whenever possible.
