The Barnes TTSX would be a great bullet, they hold together and leave less than a quarter size exit hole, and provide lots of shock at the same time. 110 gr TTSX, 270 WSM, 3550 fps, BC .377

Yout got it Catfish

All above are good obviously. The 22-250 and 22-250 AI are very popular but my own choice is below. ALSO, your definition of "long range" and mine......might differ. Customs are SO nice cause you can pick your rate of twist but I shoot a factory gun, CAUSE IM POOR! LOL

OH YEAH.........NEW HERE. FIRST post even! HI Gang!

I bumped into this site by accident. First accident I liked and it hasnt cost me any money........yet. lol

Catfish has got it. What you like and what you like to shoot with bullets of good rep. Now if a yote was about 497 lbs, I might have another answer.

Im old, I like older things, 'specially when they work so great...........so

I've never been a fan of slow moving heavy for caliber bullets, to a point. I have and love a 221 FB till I need more, then its a 223AI 1-12 twist, then a 22-250AI 1-12 twist, then a 243AI with a 1-8 twist. From there I would go to a big gun, 6.5X284 1-8 twist shooting 140 bergers. If that don't get r done, I'll take a class in sneeking up um.
Accurate rifle are interesting

What about this

I have a .243AI built up. that might do wonders for you. I just switched from a Nosler to a Hornady 58 Grn V-max. Being a 6mm round traveling at 4070 Fps that round dumps all its energy in the Chest cavity, and i have yet to have a large exit wound. In fact i do occasisonaly have a Rip from the overpressure but thats about it.
Does that Help?

How about the .25-06? I just acquired one for a dual purpose gun. It will be my long range coyote gun and also my deer hunting gun. I think the 110gr Accubond BC .418 or the 115gr Berger will do the trick as long as I do my part.

My new long range coyote gun will be an AR-15 in 243 WSSM shooting Berger's 95 VLD at I think about 3200 fps.
