107 mk\'s in 8-twist 6br on yotes?

Hello, can anyone tell me actual experiences on 107 mk's on coyotes? I have an 8-twist 6br that shoots them really well, and I'd like to get some shots at 500-600 yard coyotes this winter, and I've always heard not to use MATCH bullets on meat, but Walt Berger's VLD bullets HIS PAPERS CLAIM produce deadly results on varmints, and it seems like I've read that FAST twist rifles & MK's do produce decent kills, but I'd like to hear from actual users with experience on it.
Thanks, Steve.

I am shooting them out of a 6-284 @ 3500 and they perform excellent on wild hogs. If you are worried about pelt damage i would say dont use them.

Hi D-A, thanks for the reply, no, I'm not worried about pelts, I just didn't want to be sticking a wire thru them & let 'em run off & suffer.
So the MK's expand well enough for hogs, eh? That's sort of impressive, what size hogs are you shooting?

Steve,
I agree and disagree with d-a the 107gr SMK's work awesome out of a 6-284 at 3500fps, but out of a 6br at 500-600 yds they will not expand on a coyote (entry and exit hole the same size) For that range with a 6br try the 105gr Berger the 95gr Berger or if you want to make a mess try the 105gr Amax (blow up on the hide)

uncle b what would the impact velocity be at 5-600 yards with a 6br compared to 750yards with a 6-284? I would imagine that the <font color="red"> 6 br would be faster since it started slower </font> [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The mk did well on hogs from 40 lbs all the way to 225 lbs. from 90 to over 400 yards,

Hi d-a &amp; uncleb; I'm launching 107's at 2900 by load charts, and ballistics tables say I'm still 2000-ish by 600 yards......and I have a 30" barrell which gives it some more snort......
Uncleb - do you have real experience with this bullet &amp; distance with 6br on game or quoting others experiences?
My rifle shoots all 3 Amax's Mk's &amp; 95 Bergers well, so I don't really care what I use, but MK's are plentiful &amp; inexpensive, so I was hoping they'd work ok on coyotes.
Steve.

I would agree that the 107 gr SMK will shoot great but it will not expand alot at the ranges you want to shoot. It will certainly kill dogs but they will cover some ground after the shot in most cases unless you make a CNS hit or break both shoulders.

The 105 A-Max will offer dramatially better expansion then the SMK 107.

Not saying it will not be successful in the BR at 500-600 yards but there are better bullets for rapid expansion at that range in the 6mm BR. I would echo what Uncle B already correctly stated.
