22-350 1/10 best bullet/load

I have a newly built 22-250 26" barrel 1/10 twist, Timney Trigger 2.5 lbs Rem. 788 Action. Vortex scope.

Any suggestions on bullets and loads. Shoot a few targets but mostly interestred in coyotes and hopefully a wolf (two tags in my pocket) , I have some 50 gr Barnes VG and 75 gr Hornady A Max will the work?

Bought a couple boxes of 55 gr Winchester Ballistic silvertip bullets. They shot great < .5" group.

    I'm running 69 sierra hpbt but mine is a 1 in 8 twist. This is best load I have come with to date. I will be trying 80 grain sierra in the spring.

    53gr Vmax and CFE223 if you can get it, if not then I like Ramshot Biggame

    Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
