Re: 223 coyote loads?? Whats your best load??

I run an AR with a Lilja 18" 1-8" twist barrel for coyotes.

My best load to date is:
55 Grain Nosler Ballistic Tip
24.0 grains of VV N133
Rem 7.5 BR primers

3080 fps and .5 minute accuracy at 100.

I didn't have any arguments from the coyotes last year as to it's effectiveness, but I was surprised how many exited.

I don't think he get's on here a lot, but I have to thank Venatic for turning me on to N133. It was the answer to a lot of problems I was having.

    I have a 1-7 twist 18" barrel and It likes 25g varget with a 75g A-max. Not very fast but very accurate.
