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

In my 700 VLS i am using a 55 grain Sierra GK Spt with 26.9 grains of varget and the other day i was able to produce a 3 shot .331 at 100 yards, .339 at 200 and just went out today and shot a .610 at 300! I have only shot 1 coyote with this bullet but it was a 289 yards shot and he didnt take a step.

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

I love the hornady 53grn V-max bullets. They claim .290 BC. I load at the top end with Hogdon's CFE and CCI400's, adjusting the load a few tenths depending on the case, and using a longer than standard COL of 2.305". The combo produces 3415fps and 5 shot groups between 1/4" and 1/2" at 110yds every time I shoot it. Just awesome ballistics from a 1:12 twist and std wt bullets.

I have also had really nice results from that bullet, and also the 60 grain sierra hollow point as far as small groups using benchmark powder.
