What about Sierra 65gr Game King for Coyotes

Not having good luck with A-Max bullets. I ordered some Sierra 65gr Game King bullets I wonder if they'll open up on a Coyote?

What are the A-Max not doing for you ?

I'd say the 65gr gamekings would make a great coyote bullet -i have a box myself but have yet to load any up for testing.
Any game bullet will make a good coyote bullet at moderate ranges -but way out yonder a plastic tip bullet will react much faster giving better expansion at the lowered velocities.

My favorite and my guns favorite is the 55gr sierra blitzking out of a 26" barreled 22-250 ,it either kills them or takes off whatever it hits.
Also you can buy them in 500 count boxes !!!!!!----Mike

What are you shooting ?

The Amax and Vmax bullets should both be ideal for coyotes. I have used them both for years in 220 Swift, 22-250, and 243 standard and AI versions.

What are your ranges, load, rifle used, twist rate, velocity,.... etc. ??

tell me more what problems you are having.

Re: What about Sierra 65gr Game King for Coyotes

Rnnn Worker, I truly don't know why those Hornady A-Max are not doing the job. I love shooting the A-Max bullets in factory ammo. I can't seem to match their shot groups with my reloads in calibers .223 and the Triple Deuce .222Remmy.

Why you can bet your goats milk those 65 grainer Sierra "Game Kings" will work! If you don't mind me asking, what caliber are you shooting at those coyotes? My wife shoots 75 grain bullets out of her .243 model 75 and I use the 100 grain pill using my 1/4 model 70 Winchester.

Re: What about Sierra 65gr Game King for Coyotes

Hi guy’s… new here; just thought I might chime in on this post.
I have used the 65gr Sierra SPT game king on Coyotes and Targets and found them to work perfectly.

In 223 Rem; my load is;
65gr. SPT, Win case, Powder Hodgdon H-335 {25.0gr} Primer CCI #41 {for the gas guns} and Rem 71/2 for bolts, The vel‘s run at 2950 fps from the AR’ a little better in the bolt rifles… it tracks right out with the M855 ammo from an AR15/M4

In 22.250 I used Sierra 60gr HP Varmint in the following load; Win case, Powder IMR-4064 {34.0grs} Primer CCI BR-2, vel’s “were spot on”… 3400 fps from my Weatherby 26” barrel Varmintmaster. I changed the bullets going too the 65gr. SPT and never looked back. This is a lethal load for Yotes as was the ,223 Rem load above’.., an at some pretty decent ranges. It broke “bone” and “shoulders” both at short and long range’.., spreading Yote clock work all over the high plains desert of Eastern Washington.
There was nothing wrong with the 60gr HP, the 65gr just pushed it out there another 150 to 200 yards.

my varmint barrel loves them. keep your velocity on the medium high side and they'll expand great. I shot one last fall that took out the right shoulder and stuck in the hide on the left. Great round to load.
