Re: best round for coyote?
a $100 mosin nagant should make short work of coyotes . if hunting for pelts id use something smaller 22-250 .223 .243, but sounds like you are looking to protect your animals and a 7.62x54R soft point will sure take care of any coyote . plus the rifles are cheap , accurate and easy to maintain .
