Most definitely, sir. Will knock em deader than a bag o' hammers.
The .223 is a fine choice for coyotes! I'd say the same for several other cartridges, but the .223 will not disappoint you if you do your part and place the bullet decently.
You bet it is!
Good deer rifle too in the hands of a good shooter and 55 grain pluss soft points!
It's worked well for me.
yes sir it is
I'v heard it's good...
All the way. Buy a good scope and off you go!
It will work just fine!
Yes. Although the military uses this round in combat, the old charts for .223 listed it as a "varmint round", meaning 70 pounds and less.
I know a guy that hunts deer with the .223, brain shots but I wouldn't recommend it for deer. Just my opinion, I think it is a little light. I think it is an excellent choice for coyotes.
Yes, I use a Remington 788 chambered in 223 and it works great.
It should work perfectly.
Absolutely! A .223 is deadly. It will really tail off in power and speed after 400 yards but most of your shooting will probaly be less than that anyway.
That caliber would be very good for coyote. Good luck!
Excellent choice! Remember to aim center chest. The winter coat on Maine's coyote is pretty thick and fluffy and makes them look bigger than they are.
That will get the job done.
yeah my neighbor uses one and he always gets one
shoot yeah it will! i prefer a .17- cheap-ish round and it'll fly to the edge of the earth(or to some unlucky coyote's lung). my back-up would be a good .22,very cheap round and a respectable range.
If it's good enought for Vietcong, it's good enough for a coyote.
yes , it is a good coyote gun.
