Re: Best 7mm bullet for coyotes

For fast and flat I like the 120 grain ballistic tip.

It is a real hummer and has a thicker jacket than the 140s.

It is a very accurate bullet and performs well at 500 and 600 yards and at 7mmRem Mag
velocities it will do well at 700 and 800yards.

Years ago Nosler had complaints from the varmint guys and so they thickened up the jackets
and improved its performance.(The varmint guys loved it).

I have used it between 500 and 700 yards with 100% success.

    Can't say as I blame them !!!!

    They are sometimes not very cooperative, Especially if they have been hunted very much.

    It appears that age is a bit of a factor regarding respect for the 120.

    Thanks for continuing the knowledge.
