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

I don't think I've ever shot a coyote with factory ammo.

For several years now I have used Hdy. 50gr. Vmax. They have performed very well. My rifle likes them a lot and that makes me happy.

Favorite recipe:
Win. brass
CCI primer
36.7gr. Varget
50 gr. v-max

Yes, I know it's a hot load. It has performed well, and unfortunately my rifle performs best with this load. I've done several ladder tests at different charges and this is by far the best performer.

These are both warm loads and should be worked up to.
22-250 rem. 34gr IMR 3031, rem brass, cci 200 primer. 50gr Hornady SP.

22-250 rem. 35gr IMR 3031, rem brass, cci 200, 52gr Hornady Amax.

Both of these loads shoot under half moa to 300yds in my Tikka and have accounted for alot of coyotes bang flopped for my brother and I. I've replaced the 52gr Amax with the 52gr Hornady hpbt match bullet with the same accuracy, but not as quick of expansion as the Amax.

I also use 58gr vmax in my 243 win. with 43gr of Varget, federal brass, and rem 9.5 primers. This load will honestly shoot 3/8" at 100 yds with my Browning BLR. I've shot a dozen yotes with it since I got it this fall and it puts yotes down with authority.

Good luck!

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

Howdy,

For the last 40 years I have used a 257 Roberts. Most of my coyotes were killed with IMR 3031 or Hodgdon Varget and 75 gr. Sierra hollow points. I load to get right at 3000 fps. I can document over 2300 rounds through this rifle, and I can document over 1200 rounds with one of these basic loads.

In this rifle, this load still shoots under 1 inch at 100 yards. When I first developed this load, it would shoot right at 3/8ths inch. Part of the increase in size is most assuredly my eyesight and age. Still, I paid off my college loans with coyotes and these loads.

Best to you and good shooting.

Coach

Out of my Rem. Sendero VSSF II in 220 swift, I use 55 gr Nosler BTs with 38 gr of H380. Only goes 3500 fps which is mild for the swift but my barrel is gonna last a little longer!

My new fav. go to gun for coyotes is my 6.5 Grendel AR. I have it pushing a 100 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip behind 29.5 gr of H322. It knocks the crap out of the coyotes no matter where I hit them! I am fixing to work up a load with the 120 gr Noslers next.

Have not found a favorite for my 22-250 and 1 in 14 twist. Currently using a 50 gr v-max moly backed with 36.5 grains of varget. Anyone using the Berger 52 gr match varmint?
