I haven’t hunted anything as big as a coyote with a pellet gun. When I was in the service on leave with a buddy who lived outside of Columbia SC when went wild hog hunting using his family centerfire rifles the day before the hunt we made some mercury bullets we drilled I’d the bullet from the rear and put a drop of mercury in the cavity then sealed the hole with a small lead plug. Then reloaded the cartridge. The mercury had room to slosh around in the projectile. When the bullet finally hit home the mercury would move rapidly forward causing the bulled to literally explode in the target, every hog went down immediately. We also shot some melons and the blew into thousands of pieces. Probably not legal but it was fun. It might work in a big bore but not in a pellet.
