Default Which bullet for eastern coyote hunting?

Choice A: Remington 223 pressure R223R1 55gr Core Lokt PSP

Choice B: Colt Defense 5.56mm pressure 62gr Swift Scirocco II.

Choice C: Doesn't matter, one is as good as the other.

(Not really looking for other bullet suggestions, as I have a bunch of these 2 loads)

Thanks for any help!

I will put that down as a C vote. Thanks for your input.

Not answer C for me unless both shoot equally well.

The difference between the two in my rifle is negligible.

Valorius- Don't understand your statement "Choice C: Doesn't matter, one is as good as the other." if so why the question?

Then, my answer is "C".

If you keep the hide, the only other thing to consider is pelt damage.

If they shoot the same, the Scirocco is the bullet I would prefer.

Choice C was provided as an option for those replying to the thread to choose.
