I wish this was true for me. I hunt coyotes a cp times a month with call, only saw a few here and most were in a dead run. After so many pics of DRT animals, I took my 20" 5R with my match 175smk load @2760, turned on the call and in five minutes I was looking at a big boy through my NF NSX, @160yds. I pulled dead on his shoulder, fired and watched him hit the ground and just shake, it was yelping some but other than that nothing. I went to get my decoy and my son yelled "it's up" I put the ret on him again and shot him again, and he hit the ground again, so I went to get my pistol, came back and the dang dog was gone, plenty of blood for 20yds, me and some friends couldn't find a drop. Shot one the next day same gun with a berger hunting VLD and it fell DRT. ? I'll always buy em for my 6.5CM, 260, and .308's for match shoots, but not again.
I agree with you by my personal experience also with ( coyotes & 175 smk's ) . I'm NOT talking deer or any other game 'just Coyotes' .
I have shot more than a few coyotes in my life . 175smk .30 cal. ( SUCK Donkey Balls ) results were a far cry from satisfactory when compares to V-max,Speer or any other Varm. bullet . ( Honestly ) I have got great results and I will use 'pointed soft-point' before I will ever use another .30 175 smk again for Coyote .
