110g. V-max\'s out of a 308win. ?????????

I am interested in any info someone might be able to offer up. Thought I would give them a try out of my 700 LVSF just to see what ground hogs an Yote's though of them.

    I've used the 120gr V-Max in my 7mm-08 for mid-summer practice. They do some very wrong things to a groundhog.

    I've got a buddy that shoots them in his patrole carbine
    (Springfield Socom II) I've seen a few dogs shot within 100yds with them and it makes a hell of a hole !!
    they shoot supprisingly accurate out of this gun , they are factory loaded TAP rounds from Hornady.
    I've heard several other guys say they got decient results with them out of 30-06's.

    Coyotewallace, my friend uses the 110 V-Max in his 308 varmint rig. The bullet is very destructive on squirrel, PDogs, coyotes, ect. He is pushing the 110 V-Max at around 2750 to 2800fps out of his 24" barrel. His rifle is pretty much a stock Remington 700 VLS, he has only added an H&S Tactical stock and a trigger job. His groups are right around 3/4's to 1" at 100 yards. He will be taking this rifle on our varmint hunt in May 2007, so he just ordered 800, 110 V-Max bullets for the trip. We are going to have a RED MIST PARTY, I can't wait!

    Same but different, I am using the 110gr SP's from Hornady(same but different + all the store had in 110gr LOL) in my 26" 300 WM Heavy Barrel and in development so far I have gotten them up to 3050fps and I am only half way up to max. The Hornady book says that I should get 3700 out of them but I can expect to hit 3700 a grain or two off of max due to my barrel being over 2" longer than the test barrel....I am hoping to get out this fall/winter and drop a yote or two with this load and my 150gr NBT loads I am working up now.

    Wallace, interesting you should ask. I'm in the process of working up loads with them now in a Remington Milspec 308. Preliminary loads with Varget & 4064 were well under an inch. Factory 110 gr Hornady TAP loads shot well too. An acquaintance shot some 'yotes with 110s last winter & they were thru-n-thru out past 200.

    I thought about making a 30BR, shooting 110grain V-max or 125 grain Speer hollow points at 3000fps.

    But Im not sure if this is better on smaller varmints then a coyote, compared to a 223 or 22-250 shooting 50 grains at 35-3800 fps.

    At ranges out to 300 yards, wich would you choose? Max carnage is what Im after!
