factory ammo for new coyote killer

I just put together a new predator gun that will replace my ultra heavy custom 22-250. I am on a budget and need help with finding factory loads for this gun. The rifle is a 200 stevens in .223 with a nikon buckmaster 6-18X for the optics. I worked hard to improve the factory stock and was able to knock a couple pounds off the trigger with a little help, oh and did my first camo paint job thanks for the help. I am ready for the range and was wondering what factory rounds have usually worked well in these rifles. I know every rifle is different but just looking for good advise with this 1-9 twist. i was thinking black hill but i am willing to try any brand. once again the help i get here has always been awesome. thank you to all the people that have helped this beginner shooter!!!!

    Black Hills 52 gr MHP. I'm not sure how they would work on coyotes, but they are very accurate.

    Can we see any pics of your finished product? I have a Stevens in .25-06 and am trying to get ideas on what to do with the stock.

    tommy:
    Your 1:9 twist barrel will handle the larger .223 bullets. So I'd look at the 62grains and heavier. Black Hills makes some nice stuff.

    Black Hills if you can get it.

    A lot of guns shoot the Winchester whitebox 40 pack of 45g really well. I'd give em a try as they are cheap.

    My Stevens 223 shot the whitebox very well out to 300 yards. It also shot the Premium Winchester Nosler 40g good too. They are expensive tho.
