Has anyone tried out the Grendel on coyotes, and does it seem to work well?

I hit one at about 90 yards with a Wolf 120 grain MPT and it messed it up in pretty fine fashion.
Spun it 180 degrees and dropped it clean, never took a step....
Will try and find the gory pics.....

Click HERE for the most recent thread on my forum regarding the 6.5 Grendel and coyotes. Bottom line is, yes, it will do the trick.

I've seen coyotes killed with .22 mag, so I can't imagine how 6.5 G would NOT do the job. The projectiles pack plenty of punch, fly pretty flat, and move pretty fast.

Berger's got a new 6.5mm 100gr bullet, which, with their thin jackets, should be explosive on coyotes.
