Maybe but I started hunting coyotes in Texas and feel like my nerves are pretty solid. I donít get jumpy when a coyote appears and I have lost a few too many with a 223 at night.

Aside from that, as a contest hunter, if a coyote takes more than one step, he has gone too far after the shot. I donít care how good of a shot you are , a coyote will run from time to time when he gets hit with a 223. Thatís not acceptable for contest hunting. I think we are looking for different thinks out of the round. Iíd i was day hunting for pleasure, there would be no need for anything more than the old 223 rem
