i know this has been rehashed by everyone a thousand times. i am purchasing a new short action rifle for the aforementioned critters after my .308 ripped the right rear quarterpannel off of the last coyote i shot with it. i'm having trouble deciding on a caliber. i would like some suggestions, and if you could include fur mangling experiences i'd appreciate it. (songdog, i already saw your rear leg .243 coyote pic.) the rifle will be primarily for coyote with (God willing) a fair assortment of fox and bobcat mixed in. i would like to have salvageable hides, but do not want to use a .17 cal. info?
