Re: v-max for coyotes??

It sounds like the guys shooting the v-maxes in the heavier(70-80gr) bullets are having touble with tearing up hides on the coyotes. I shoot 40-50 grain v-maxes out of my 223 and never have that problem. Around 20 coyotes with these bullets at 150 yards or closer, dropped in their tracks, and no exit wounds.

Re: v-max for coyotes??

I HAVE HAD VERY GOOG LUCK WITH THE SMALLER BULLETS ON PELT DAMAGE I SELL SO ITS CRUICHEL ON PELT DAMAGE. THE HEAVERRY BULLETS ARE NICE OUT AT LONG RANGES. I HAVENT GOT TO RUNN THE BIGGER BULLETS SO I CANT TELL HOW THEY RUN YOTES. BUT I DO RUN ON BIGGER GAME NOT V MAX BUT HONADY 225 GR HORNADY SOFT POINTS FOR ELK. AND I CAN GET REALLY GOOD RANGE. CERTAIN BULLETS FO CERTAIN APPLICATIONS .YOU JUST GOT EXPERIMENT TO GET THE LOAD THAT WORKS. GOOD LUCK WITH 223.

Re: v-max for coyotes??

I shoot 58gr. V-Max at 4000 fps out of my 243wssm and I can tell you it is not a pelt saver. Check out the coyote ugly thread on this site. These bullets are very accurate out to 500 yards for me.It groups a 10 shot session in the size of a nickel at 300 yards. I like to call the 'yotes in so that V-Max smacks the hell out of them at those speeds.

87 vmax for 1x10 twist. If your twist is 1x9 you might try Hornady 87 bthp. Harder bullet and works on deer.

Re: v-max for coyotes??

I use 75Vmax in my 6-284 and it sure does make a mess of things. If you're a pelt saver, I don't think the Vmax line of bullets is the best option as they leave big messy holes.

My daughter is a little wacky, the bigger the mess, the more she likes going.
