    I have tried the 110 Vmax in my Savage 340 and it worked pretty well. Never shot an animal with it but it was pretty darn accurate. The 125gr Sierra was accurate as well. I've never shot cast through my Savage so I don't know what works in it.

    Thats was going to be my backup plan if i couldnt get the velocity i wanted with cast, either a vmax or a 110gr prvi soft point at 2400fps, i just hate the thought of paying for a jacketed bullet if i can get what i want for 1/10th the price and some tinkering.
    Plus while i am not doing it for the money, i do like the idea of offsetting the cost of calls/decoys etc with the pelts and dont want to destrot them.

    It looks like the pelts of them is the main thing moving and up your way they should be better then what I get here. You get more if you sew up the holes and wash the fur in cold water to take all the dirt and blood out of the fur and you put them up yourself.If you do not know how see if anyone around you willing to teach you. Also check with the one you will sell the pelts to.If it gose to auction then they need to be done up.

    Don't over think your choice... Know your gun and your load, put the slug through the shoulders and your coyote is dead.
    Larry Gibson stated it well when he characterized coyotes as "tenacious". It's attitude though; physically, they're nowhere near as tough as hogs.
