"OO" Buck?

 Not much shot in a 16. It will kill but you have to be close and a very good shot...

Is this factory ammo?

Around here their is not much 16 guage ammo on store shelves. I never understood that cause I think the 16 is about the perfect shotgun for many things. specially pheasants.

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

the choke in your gun will make a lot of difference on how it performs on 'yotes...but you got the best advice from the resident 'yote killing expert already...heed it if you want to get best results

I've used #4 buckshot for coyotes with very good results. 12 gage full choke though. Drops them where they are at 25 yard bait set.
