I'll second jb1000br when it comes to the 80 grainer. I have had awesome luck with this bullet as well as the 85gr. Sierra GameKing. The SGK gave me about 1MOA accuracy and was the most consistent. Make sure you check the twist rate on the box of pills you pick up though. I picked up the 1:8 twist A-Max's one time and had terrible luck.
Mark, that 87 gr. V-Max is the highest B.C. (.4) pure varmint bullet made. I've been awful curious just how far you could go out with it with good terminal ballistics on varmints (especially coyotes). I'm gonna be building a 24 cal. XP pistol/rifle combination of some sort soon for spot and stalk coyote hunting, but i don't know what bullet to use to get me out as far as possible. Shooting coyotes is not like any other varmint shooting, as the terminal ballistics part is so important since they can easily get away if not put down with authority. Any ideas??
I tried to find some 87gr V-Max but I could only found the 75gr V-Max so I tried them.
3-shot 100yd group was .663". This will improve when I get a much needed trigger job done on my rifle! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I will be trying the load at 300 & 500yds as soon as the weather permits.
Darryl: Have you tried the 105's in a 9 or 10 twist? I have found that I can play with the the velocity to overcome the spin issue (to some extent) when it comes to the 105's in my 10 twist. I have actually had AWESOME luck with that pill in my .243 Win (< .55 MOA), but my .243 Ackley and my .240 Weath. Mag don't seem to like it too much, all of which are in 10 twist bbls. Guess it just likes the harmonics of the bbl i'm shooting with!
