I was wondering why I counted 16 holes on your target with only one shot, then I thought you maybe took 2 shots, so I looked again and wasn't sure what 00 buck you used. 18 requires those 3 1/2 in. shells, and that has got some kick too it.

Sweet, I haven't seen any with that many. Did you buys those local, or online?

I bought them at Gander Mountain here locally.

I prefer to shoot bird loads all day and night over 3 rounds or more of the cannon load, lol.

No guts, no glory !!!
50 to 70 is fine.


I disagree, past 50 pick up that rifle. That's what it's there for.

Well I think you still have 20 yards before the '250 is needed.

I hand load "F" lead 3 1/2 " 1 1/2 oz. loads going around 1400 fps through the " dead coyote" choke and get good patterns at 60/70 yards and have killed many coyotes at that range.

 I found this on the Cheaper then dirt sight as a description from and about dead coyote 3 " shells.

 

Manufacturer: Hevi-Shot 43030
Item: 20853
UPC: 816383430309

12 Gauge Dead Coyote Load. This example is a 3" Shell loaded with 1-1/2 oz T Shot, 52 Pellets, which it launches at 1350 fps

Hevi-Shot Dead Coyote loads provide over 50.20 caliber Pellets of T shot in every load that provides lethal knock down power at 70 plus yards. 100% pattern- 30" circle at 50 yards. Hevi-Shot Dead Coyote is nearly twice as effective as standard conventional loads. Hevi-Shot Dead Coyote is USFWS approved for Waterfowl hunting.

 

And have found it very true.

You can believe all the advertising you like. If you are having success, than keep on.

I'll shoot them with the rifle past 50.

I love shooting my shotgun, but I am shooting 2 3/4 and 3in. max shells, so the max range for me for high percentage, ethical kill shots is 50yds. Plus, I only have the standard front bead, no red dot sight or fiber optic aiming system. I have not even practiced at the range past 50yds, because I don't want to waist the ammo that was hard to get enough of for coyote loads. Shotgun is the only gun I am not set-up to reload, so the coyote loads are just for hunting because I used what I needed to see my patterning up to 50yds. I have a lot more rifle rounds stocked up for reloading, so that is my method and 2 cents.

I hear ya I'll sacrifice my shoulder and post results from 30, 50, and even 100yds with 3 1/2 00Bk. It should be interesting to see. I also only have a front bead.

I'm glad I'm not a one man army here. Rich, you can come hunt with me anytime if you like.

I wouldn't shoot ducks and geese at 50 yards, let alone a big tough coyote.

You wouldn't get much shoot'n here then.

50 /60 is a long way but a lot of times that's what you get, May as well be prepared for it.

I'll be sure to bring my rifle then if you're still talking about coyotes.

Cody,

50 yards or so is one thing, but 60-70 yards is stretching it. Spray and pray distance ain't it. :teeth:

At 50 yds it actually hit high but spread was about 1 1/2ft wide.

Rich, I'm with you. I'm not sure why there's a need to stretch out to 70 yards with a shotgun.

DD, I understand that there are tough days water fowling, but why do you say you only have 50 yard shot opportunities at ducks?

I'd never shoot at a coyote knowing that was my pattern at 50 yards. To me, that looks like junk.
