Best bullet choice.

As I can't get my hands on any Hornady 150 SST's. What is your opinion in choosing either the Hornady 155 A Max or the Nosler 155 Custom Competition in 308 for use on wolves.

Use what ever works best in your rifle. The most important thing is to make a hole.

Didn't know how much tougher they are than coyotes.

Re: Best bullet choice.

I should have been a little more explicit. I was reffering to a 223 against a coyote as compared to the 308 on a wolf.
I'm planning on hunting around Augusta MT. Either it's going to be my FN TSR 308 or my DPMS LR 308.

Re: Best bullet choice.

My experience says their comfort zone is 600 yds. or more. Yes, you can catch them closer than that but they don't stick around long if they know you are there. With that in mind take the rifle that will perform at that distance. These things are not dummys and have gotten pretty wary since people started shooting at them.
