Re: .243 Win Coyote Loads

I have worked up a load using 41.5 gr. of H380 and Winchester standard primers and Winchester brass. 2.640" in my Remington SPS 1:9 1/8 twist and getting 3/4" 5 shot groups at 100 yards so far. I have bought fed magnum primers and going to ladder step it up and down to get the best possible accurate load. Haven't shot a coyote with it yet to see how they do but hopefully today or tomorrow I will get a chance to do that.

Re: .243 Win Coyote Loads

I have a tikka t3 lite that my 13 year old son shoots for coyotes and I load 80gr nosler bt with 40.0grs of varget and ccibr2 primers. And this creates basically one ragged hole at 100yards I absouletly love this combo for big coyotes, for the price you cannot beat a tikka.

Your load sounds like a great fur fiendly load how destrive on pelts is that. Should be around 2900 to 3000 fps, my estimation.

so with the 1/12 twist you should also be able to shoot 55-80 gr bullets very well correct???

Can you give me an estimate on what the barrel cost. Probably used a gunsmith to fit to you action??? Who did you use??? Did they ream the barrel for you???

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Re: .243 Win Coyote Loads

I just recently obtained the rifle from another person who pawned it for needed money and did not come back to pick it up. I have not shot a coyote with it yet, I have been out 3 tiimes trying, however I don't think it would be very pelt friendly, it is the 80 gr Nos Ballistic Tip p/n 24080. From reviews that I have read the 80 Burger match target bullet seems to be a good bullet for pelts. As for the PacNor Barrel I have seen the prices and they are not that bad. It was reported to me that a gunsmith performed all the work. but I think the 1 in 12 twist would be great for coyotes, with the option to shoot the smaller bullets, I have read good reviews about the 69 gr bullet also.
Good luck, Bob
