Re: .243 Win Coyote Loads

One bullet I didn't see mentioned (but I will admit I just skimmed) is the 55 grain Nosler BT. My dad is an ADC Specialist (full time federal trapper, kills 300-400 coyotes/year) and uses it in a supressed Rem 700 .243 as a calling/walking rifle. Coyotes are usually DRT or very close too it. Not too pelt friendly. Have no idea what load he is using these days.

.243 Winchester coyote loads. 87 vmax, 1x10 twist, 37.5-38 grains Varget. start 10% lower work up. Hornady 87 grain bthp, 1x9 twist, 37.1 grains IMR 4064, Hornady reload manual load. 55 nbt, nosler accuracy load in nosler reload manual for Varget. Also 55nbt load on front of H4895 reloading powder, 44.5 grains H4895 All loads are for 1x10 twist except for 1x9 twist for Hornady 87 bthp. All accurate loads for rifles I load for. 1/2" to 1 1/4" at 200 yards. Some of my rifles are customs and they shoot these loads VERY well!

Re: .243 Win Coyote Loads

My Tikka likes the 75 gr vmax with 42grns of H414 C.O.L. is 2.70"
My Savage 243 likes the 105 Amax w/42 grns of H4350 C.O.L.is 2.80"
75 gr vmax puts em lights out u can move em +3400fps and they have a good B.C.
105 amax has a real good B.C. @.500 I think same as the 87 gr vmax and they absolutely destroy coyotes.
See my last post of "rabbiddog and son hit the woods" I nailed that coyote with a 105 2 round 100yds+-.

Re: .243 Win Coyote Loads

I shoot the 87 VMAX using WIN brass and H4350. 43.0 gr and lit by a FED 210M get me right at 3200 fps with my 24" AR10T. VERY accurate. Furthest coyote was 785. A couple of spins and he was down. I've shot it at around 100*F to -15* F or so. Very temp stable, too. I've never had a problem finding the 87's locally.

Re: .243 Win Coyote Loads

I use 43gr of Varget, federal brass, rem 9.5 primer, and 58gr Vmax. It really hammers em. But I haven't shot anything further than 300 with it yet.

Gotta love them Tikkas.

Re: .243 Win Coyote Loads

I run 75gr hornady loads, they are hell on yotes i've never had one take a step after being hit. Any shot from shoulders forward they hit the dirt, not too bad on the pelts. My farthest shot has been around 400yd and she went straight down...
