both were head on chest shots, they fell down and then jumped up and ran off, i was able to blood trail one in the snow but it eventually ran out and no coyote at the end

I'm mostly loading the 40 gr vmax for bobcat... I think I'm going to try something else for coyotes. Something a little heavier then 40.

Re: Do you reload your own coyote ammo or shoot factory? Whats your favorite load?

I like a 50 grain vmax over 26 grains of N133 in a lake city case with a wolf small rifle primer. The manual says 3533 FPS from a 24" barrel. I haven't had an opertunity to test my new chronograph so I haven't verified that.

I just finished an AR build so I am tempted to work up something with a heavier bullet just to see what happens.

I use a .223 Ruger 77 MkII, pushing a 50 grain V-Max with Winchester 748, Hornady brass and CCI 450 primer at 3350 fps. 6 for 6 this winter. Now that the wind will start up, I will be using my .257 Roberts with 75 grain V-Max at 3500 fps or my .264 Win Mag. with 120 grain Barnes TSX at 3480 fps. All of these rounds have performed well.

If it is real tight cover, I use a 12 guage with 1 1/2 oz of copper plated BB, out to 50 yards it gets the job done.
