300 Ultra "Coyote" load

I am looking for load data for a 168 gr A-Max out of my 300 Ultra for coyote (I don't have the Hornady manual). Any ideas?

Re: 300 Ultra "Coyote" load

Just curious, why choose the 178 over the 168. They have similar BCs and the velocity of the 168 would be higher, which would help for point blank coyote shooting i.e. 0-400 dead on hold. I am just curious, is the 168 not a good bullet, better put, is it not as accurate as the 178 in an Ultra Mag? I have no problems shooting slower, if it will be more accurate.

Thanks for your help.

Than

I have not shot the 168's so I can'nt tell you if there better or worse....The 178's I've shot have been devastating on anything they hit...

Re: 300 Ultra "Coyote" load

I've shot 168 A-Max out of a Rem Sendro in 300 win and they have performed very well. In fact I shot my best group with them. I haven't shot them at anything live over 400 yds but the 275# wild pig at 375 yds fell dead in its tracks on a shot that impacted in between its shoulder blades. In my opinion it would be an excellant coyote bullet. The load I shot was very light though with a muz vel of 2850 with 60.0 grns of IMR 4350. I also shot it in my 30-378 wby (26" barrel)at 3400 fps and 121 grains of w872 and it shot very well with higher powder charges.

I too shoot the RUM and mine loves the 125gr Noslers.It does a nice job on coyotes.With 90gr of H-4831 its running at 3625.It was surprising to me for this bullet to shoot in the 3's,you might give it a try.

Re: 300 Ultra "Coyote" load

I shoot 165gr out of my 300RUM. I use 100gr of RL25 and get 3/4 inch at 100yards. Might get better if you use 99 or 98 grains but with 100 im getting 3450fps. Pretty quick. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
