    another nod for the one load. Life's too complicated to worry about the ballistics of two different loads.

    Besides, you can consider the varmint as natures way of providing a live fire excersize.

BUT, if you want to develope another load for your gun, GO FOR IT.

    Good luck,
    Well, mostly its an availability problem. The 168's can be a difficult thing to get my hands on in Northern BC, when I want them.

    Noslers and Sierra's etc are pretty easy to come by up here though.

    And generally speaking I only carry around 20 rounds give or take of the TSX's when I head out for a weekend, and like to hang on to them. I'm not really partial to banging out 3 or 4 or 8 of them at a coyote at 700yards just for because. Noslers or what have you though, thats a different ball game.

    Live fire exercise excise....I like it. And I do.

    Ok, the real reason is that I'm finding that with the 168 TSX I'm getting resonable expansion, shoulder shots or ribs don't seem to make a huge difference, exit wounds are around 2 inches....

    HOWEVER, the one that I shot with a 165 Nosler was chopped in half. Literally. Mind you it was only about 90 yards...I'm looking for that sort of expansion at 300+...

    (I REAAAALLLLLY hate coyotes. Wolves get shot with whatever is handy.)

    Thanks for all the posts so far guys, I'm appreciatingit no end. And it gives me a place to start.

    If you think that 165 Nosler was impressive, just wait til you whack one with a 110 V-Max out of a 300 RUM!!.

    You'll need a sponge to take it home.

    You will also get similar results with a 155 AMAX.

    I've killed many a Coyote and a few Wolves with my 300 RUM using what was in the chamber and intended for big stuff. The 200 AB.

    I would have had to pass on a few if I had to unload and reload with a different bullet.

    I pretty much have my corrections memorized for that rifle with my go to Big Game load, why worry about two charts and confuse the issue.
