Re: Your Fur Rifle and load: Coyote, Fox, and Bobcats

Calib: My son did pretty well on the few coyotes he shot with the 58 grain V-max out of his Ackley but he never put one on the shoulder. Judging from the terminal performance on jacks (total devastation on the lines of a .20 cal 32 gr V-max), I think it may be a little too fragile. They may splash on those quartering-on shoulder shots. Ballistic Tips are a little tougher than the V-max so I imagine they might make it through a coyote in a 70 grainer. The construction of the 55 grain BT would probably be closer to the 65 gr V-max. It's a pretty fine line we walk trying to keep the bullet inside a coyote without splashing. We'll see. Field testing is the fun part!

    This Fall after Deer Season I'm going to spend most of the season consintrating on Bobcats. I will be shooting my .19 Badger with the 32gr bullet at 3450 I have yet to shoot a cat with it but talked with a shooter who has used it to take over 100 Bobcats..............He liked it better than his .17 Mack IV
    Even when calling up in the rimrocks and Junipers you alway get a coyote or fox to come in and twice I have had Mt. lions come in....................I bought a Lion tag, but not sure how I would feel taking a shot at a big Male with the .19 I might load up some heavyer bullets to take just in case ..........................

    My rifle/ load is the 6.5 Creed Ruger M 77 Hawkeye stainless. Shooting 110 gr Barnes Banded Solids at 3030 fps. Not overly fast but it doesn't blow up a fox or lynx and it will go the length of a 150 lb wolf running straight away. Then with a 120 gr TTSX I've got an ideal rifle for caribou.
