I shoot 55V-Max over 25.3 H335 LC brass. Shoots right around 1MOA from my Stevens 200. Definitely bang flop so far.

In 223 my load is 26.5gr. of Win. 748 behind a Calhoun 52gr.dblhp. Not my favorite caliber for Coyote, but it has worked pretty good.
My main Coyote caliber is 17 Rem. and that load is 20.9gr. of H322 behind a 25gr. Genco 7S bullet or the 25gr. Match Berger.
Lately I've been using a 204 and with a Ruger Ultralight the load was 28.2gr. of H4895 and a Berger 35gr Match bullet. Very good Coyote load. I sold the Ruger and bought a Kimber Montana in 204. It's load is 27.9gr. of IMR8208XBR behind the Berger 35gr. Match bullet. This is a very impressive load and a super impressive rifle.

my personal favorite load is 21 gr of imr 4198 pushing a 55 gr nosler b tip using winchester brass and federal primers nets me 3030 fps. All the coyotes I've shot have made it less than 10 yards perfect performance on coyotes, crows, and other varmits the noslers are a bit more expensive than the v-maxes but I have had nothing but bad experiences with the v-maxes in my Bushmaster.

I load 24.2 grains of TAC with a 55 gr. VMax out of a DoubleStar AR15 with an Aimpoint red dot scope. This is my calling rifle and for long distance I have a Savage 6BR LRPV, and a T/C Encore with a heavy barrel in 6.5x.284. I use 4831 SC and 140 gr. Sierra MK's and 140 Berger VLD's. At the moment I am rigging up a Savage 110BA in .338 Lapua with a Nightforce 5.5x22x56 scope but that is another story.

I haven't shot any yotes with them yet. I sure have heard a lot of bad things about vmax's lately. I might have to make the switch. I'm thinking Berger...

I don't know about you guys because I'm new to this forum, but part of a few others and when I hear about fancy guns... I think I can speak for a lot of guys and say I like to see pictures of these fancy things.
