What high BC 223 coyote load for 500 yards?

hey guys i just bought a 223 tactical SPS with a 20" bbl toped with a 6-18x40SF MD that i know how to use..i would like to get a good long range coyote load out of this. im being told to shoot 55gr. soft pint boat tail so i can get penetration on a texas heart shot. but i can only get around .250 BC with this and i we get wind around here so i was looking at the JLK LD line of bullets and the Nosler 69 Gr BTHP everybody loves. im just getting into reloading and dont have much money to spend so i wanted to see what what people with expirence have gotten so i dont have to spend money and time trying to find a bullet that works.

9 twist correct ?

shoot the 75 HPBT or 75 Amax in it if it is the 1 in 9

Black Hills ammo sells the 77 SMK, the 75 HPBT, and the 69 I think.

depending on your mag, you will be limited using the Amax and VLD bullets.

if you want to switch bottom metal, you could load them out. Otherwise, you will make your repeater a single shot.

The 77 SMK, 75 hornady hpbt and similar will work great in the factory mag box and shoot great.

You need a bigger gun! Why do so many keep asking so much from so little a caliber. 5.56/.223 is pretty much a varmint cartridge, as a weapon - not ment to kill ,but wound . Why does everyone expect it can kill anything ? Their are bigger & better calibers for shooting deer .

Last I checked coyotes were considered varmints not a species of deer. hahaha
