Caleb, What rifle are you using and what is your rate of twist.

    I have not shot Coyotes, but I do know that a 8 twist is enough for the 75 GR. Amax.

    Why not jump up to a 243? Just curious.
    Not going to lie, when my 22-250 barrel gives up the ghost I'm going to get a 1-12 or a 1-10 for shooting the longer Barnes on deer. But those bullets are only 55's.

    I had a 243 ai with 70 grain ballistic tips and the 22-250 ai had near or better ballistics, so i tore the 243 ai apart and stuck with the 22-250 ai

    Same thing my dad said - run the ballistics on a .224 80 gr. amax going 3400+ (22-243) and a 243 varmint bullet at its speeds - this is also for long range - if you are talking 400 yards and under just stick with a 243.

    I have looked at the 22-243 and have thought of re chambering my 22-250 ai to it, but for now why mess with what is working. look at the 75 a max at 3600 fps talk about a bad a## round
