I ran 55gr nosler b-tips the most, shot very well and performed great on the coyotes I shot with it.

Re: What's your favorite bullet weight, in .224?

Hi,

I have been using 50 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tips almost exclusively in my Weatherby Vanguard varmint special, with excellent results. Also the 50 gr Ballistic Silvertip, But, lately I came across a bunch of Hornady 53 gr. V-Max, and must say, they are VERY awesome as well.... Preliminary testing is good. And I believe with a little tweaking they will shoot every bit as well, if not better than the NBT.... Although, if i can shoot .221" ish groups at 100 yards with either, how much better can it get?

The thing is, I got the 53 gr. V-Max's for alot cheaper then the Nosler, and I figure the little extra weight can't hurt when going for 'yotes.....

I like the hornady 68gr hpbt out to 300 and hornady 75 hpbt out to 600. I've been using both in my bushmaster ar for about two years. The 75gr are seated out so far they won't fit in the mag.

I think it's more about what my gun(s) likes? My AR is a 1-8 twist, and likes 55gr. Nosler BT, and V-Max's. Funny thing is, my Remington 700 heavy barrel 22-250 1 holes 55 grain Vmax's too, and the twist is no where near as fast? I like 1 hole bullets, no matter what the weight!!

I have been researching a good round for hunting hog, whitetail deer, antelope and black bear, coyote etc... What I have found is that Winchester has come out with a .223 round for hunting. Winchester RazorBack 64gr with 3020 fps at the barrel and 750 vol.@ 200yds. Rifle requires a 1-9 or faster twist. Has anyone out there ever used this round yet and if so what kind of results have you had with it. what kind of damage did it do to the meat?
