Re: .223 68 gr bthp

haven't got anything to group very well so i went back to my ultramax .223 52 match hollowpoints and they sucked to. only thing that has changed since then is the threaded barrel with a custom muzzle brake with compensator holes. taking it back to the gunsmith to check the crown and throat. the 68 brhp was going to be my coyote load but several people have raised some objections with its terminal performance due to lack of expansion. i've shot the hornady 52 bthp on coyotes and they work great. i'm just looking for some better bullet performance than the relatively low BC's on the light varmint bullets. i could try bergers 62 and 64 grain varmint bullets or sierra's 65 grain spitzer boat tail. anyone familiar with the 68 grain performance on coyotes? how about the sierra 65 sbt? i see both ultramax and black hills makes to ammo with the 68 bthp. i shoot the bergers in my .260 and have worked with walt berger on those so i don't doubt the effectivity of the bergers. fur prices have generally sucked and i shoot coyotes year round so keeping the pelts isn't a huge priority for me.
