ill start off saying ii know its not the most ideal bullet for coyotes from what ive read. been doing some coyote hunting lately and have had some 300-400 yd shots and just could not pull them off with my 223 AR. My only other rifles are 25-06 and a 308. wondering if a 90gr gameking hpbt would be very fur friendly on a coyote at 250+

Your AR is capable of making that shot.

Upgrade optics maybe?

Guess I've never really shot that far before with it

i have a basic bushnell scope so new scope might help

The problem is not with the ammo or the rifle.

I think i might resight in at 200 instead of 100 and i should be pretty damn close at 100 and 300

The 25-06 is not very fur friendly!!!

I put the mil/mil Bushnell 10x40 3200 elite on my budget ar and hit 400m steel (12" plate) pretty easily with good ammo. You don't need $1k glass for that distance. That scope cost me $125 after that recent rebate.

No. It will help improve your sewing skills though.
