I have a very vivid imagination. I guess I could have said that it sounded like his skull was blown to bits and his brain matter was mush, maybe that's more what it sounded like.

Re: v-max for coyotes??

I used either 55 or 70 grain Nosler ballistic tip bulets for my 243 and blew apart a yotes stomach at 80 yards.... very messy. I had to drag him out of the woods a good distance.

I want to load 87 grain interbond for yotes just because the 87v-max shoots flat compared to other weights.

When I shoot chucks the 87 v-max enters with a small hole and no exit hole.
That's usaually at 100 yds. or more...

So I'm assuming the v-max will perform the same on coyote.

This weekend I'll be shooting 110 V-maxs out of my 270WSM in Oregon for coyotes. Hope I come back with graphic photos

Re: v-max for coyotes??

Thanks for posting. I have a Fox Pro that has a Female invitation call. I'll be hunting in the Ontario area. My retired and buddy bought some land up there. How cold is it? Will thermal s under pants and then bib camos wool socks Fleece pull over and cold weather head gear work?

ontaio is about ten to fifteen degrees warmer then burns. its about 20 degrees here and we got ten two twenty mile winds. but what you mention for warmth should work pretty good.
