Default Got a .270 WSM and need help with ammo.

I just picked up a Savage .270 WSM with a stainless barell and need some help with ammon selection for coyotes. What bullet style have you guys found that work the best? I'm probably going to stick with the 130gr. The ballistics seem to be the best out of them versus the 140's.

Thanks.

JMO but. . . .While a 130gr .270 WSM will shoot long and flat it will leave a fist size exit hole. If you just want them dead then your gonna be real happy. If you want the hide then you need to go quite a bit lighter.

Then a 130gr will work just fine for me.
