I've been having a fair amount of success lately calling in coyotes (although decidedly less success actually killing them). While coyotes are the only thing I still use rifles to hunt, I've been contemplating taking one of my Encores along with my AR-15, especially if I can continue to work them in as close as I have been. But which one to choose?

The 221 Fireball:


The 327 Federal:


Or my 460 S&W:

The 221 fireball. I prefer to use cartridges for their intentions. Even though any of them will kill one.
