Need a 300RUM Coyote load.

Alright, I'm looking for something that anyone has used in a RUM. I find a lot of coyotes and wolves during deer/elk/moose season, and need a load for them other than my 168gr TSX's. Tried 165gr Nosler BT's over H1000, and couldn't get them to shoot under 3".

Any suggestions?

    110 gr V-Maxs and 125 Nosler BTs will do it.
    Start with 85gr of H-4350, and work up to around 93-94 grs of H-4350 (max) @ 3650fps for the 125 BT)

    These light bullets should turn them inside out ;)

    A guy I know shot the 125gr Balistic Tips and LOVED them. But he also said they were the main cause of shooting his barrel out. I can get with him and get his load if you need me to.
    Question...why not just use your hunting load? "A lot of wolves and coyotes" is still probably relatively few shots compared to load development, etc. If it is a cost thing, TSX's aren't cheap but when you consider the added cost of load development it starts to level out. BUT, if you want to develope another load for your gun, GO FOR IT.

    Good luck,

    you dont have to shoot them at 4000fps. the 125's at 3200 or so will still have far more poop than a coyote can handle. theyll be alot more fun to shoot and easier on the nice wolf pelt too

    Concider the 155 Scenar bullet. They are not explosive at all for a good hide and they can be launched at 3500-3600 FPS with a very good BC. Above .500 at those velocities. It makes for an all around excellent varmint load.

    When I shoot varmints with my hunting rifle I use the same bullet as I would use for Deer or Elk.. Learn one load and get good with it and no worries... I killed a Bobcat today one shot and it DRT..Load 180 TSX out of my 300 Win Mag. Works on every thing, big, little, short or tall it kills them all...
