Re: 243 cal. (95 gr Bergers) on Coyotes

Yote Doctor,
I getting ready to load some 95gr Bergers. What's your recipe if you don't mind sharing. I'm shooting a savage model 11. Hoping to use it on southern whitetails out to 500 yds??

    My picture above is a little fuzzy.

    So....

    This was the best group I have ever shot with a rifle. Just using bags in the back of my truck. Not trying to pat my own back just very excited obout this load.

    Savage Predator Hunter Max 1 (24 in) After 40 rounds of break-in.
    45gr- H4831SC
    OAL 2.825 (in the lands)
    3050 fps

    We tried this in my father inlaws rifle and it also shot very well
    Havent shot this past 100 yrds yet. Waiting on a new scope and will start reaching out there a little. Hope it helps. Let me know your results.

    OAL 2.325?? really? According to the Speer book I have here, a typical OAL is 2.625 and that's with everything from 70 to 100 grain bullets.
