Re: 160gr Matrix
Did you recover the coyote? I would be surprised if it did open at that impact velocity with a standard bullet on a coyote, the Berger will even struggle at that velocity on a coyote at times.
My dad and brother shot a 4 or 5 smaller whitetail does with the annealed 160 Matrix, non were long range some may have been right of the muzzle of the rifle. We caught one bullet in a deer and it was peeled all the way back and looked just right for that impact. The organ damage was tremendous from what they told me, he's shooting them at 2960fps and we're thinking out to 500ish yards that the regular bullet is fine but after that an annealed bullet will be used.
We did not get one on an elk, there were elk every where but something always happened when dad had or was going to get a shot, it was his year to be the jinx I think, next year we both will be shooting the 160 Matrix so we'll double our odds of getting these bullets on elk which is really what we want to shoot the bullet for.
