I shot the 85g ctbtips for quitea while out of my old Ruger 25-06. It shot them at 3775 with a stiff load of RL-19. Gave under .5 groups at 100, and could hit coyotes at 600 yards. I did not do a lot of fast type shooting with it because I knew they were a barrel burner. However, for 3 shot groups, I did not find any accuracy loss due to heat. I usually wait 1 minute between shots. Now when I was coyote hunting
that was a different story. If I missed the 1st shot, I still had 4 in the magazine. I dont care who you are or what gun your shooting, hitting a running coyote is basically luck. They run into your bullet basically. Ha ha ha. There were times I shot 5 shots pretty dang fast and yes the barrel was pretty hot and usually them yotes got away on the run. It would not be my first choice for a long series shooting pdog gun, but the bullet will get youa lot farther then 500 yards. It will coyotes to 800 I imagine, and pdogs to 1000.
