I'm shooting a 24" Alexander Arms 6.5 Grendel Upper with the premium Schillen barrel upgrade with a midwest industries four rail handguard....
The only two loads I have tried shoot one ragged hole @100 yds
My Coyote Load is 32.0gr X-Terminator with a Federal small rifle match primer and 85gr sierra HP's at an honest 3150fps. Shoots like a champ I can hold center mass to 250 yds and just under the top of the back out to 300 and Dead Coyote! I have never lost one hit with this load, even if I'm a little off they are broken down enough where you dont loose them.
I used to have to double shoot quite a few with my 223 and in fact my partner lost one in a contest this year shot with his 223....had a double come in and he shot one in the center of the chest and it dropped, he went after the other one and the one he hit got away, lots of blood and hair but no coyote.
Last weekend I was chronographing a 120gr loaded with some Hunter powder right at 2330fps and here is the result of my 10 shot string(one inch squares)...........this is hands down the most accurate rifle I own!!
