Re: 257wby,100g TSX Vs.Coyote

Ol' Mike,
"ps- i usually wait until labor day to start shooting but spoke w/ some people who said please start asap.">>

In the area I hunt over in Eastern Wa. State I have hunted this same area for 10 years..I shot 4 in one morning myself and it should have been an easy 5 and pretty much kill at least one or 2 every trip out..so it's like "Dog Heaven" I shoot year around...I don't wait. It's game on when I go coyote killin

I do have a question for those guys running the 100g Bal. Tip...Are most of the hits pass thru's or staying inside the coyotes or what?? just wondering.........Because these TSX's are taking chunks when they leave(and I like it!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img])

Re: 257wby,100g TSX Vs.Coyote

I've never had a 100g NBT stay inside a coyote when shot with my 25-06 at any range...It usually leaves at least a 2" exit at the smallest, and if any major bone is hit, like a shoulder or something, you'll be looking at 4-6" exit's.

It doesn't surprise me how bad that 100g TSX opens up actually...I would have to say the WORST exit I've ever got with my 25-06 on deer was with the 100g XLC traveling 3400fps. I smacked a small forky muley buck at about 150 yards right through his shoulder socket and it left a 6-8" exit hole. I have the pic if anyone doesn't believe me...

Like I said before... the 100 grain B-Tip is violent!! I've never seen one stay in anything (except for a bunch of phone books). You should shoot some just to give them a try... hell, I'll send you 20 of 'em if you'll post the pics of the carnage when you hammer a dog with one. Deal... or No Deal? ~JT

Re: 257wby,100g TSX Vs.Coyote

For shooting coyotes... the NBT rules vs. the TSX (simply based on cost). They have seconds on sale from the Nosler pro-shop for $8 a box. They're cannelured, but it hasn't seemed to hurt the accuracy at all. Now, that being said... I'm getting out of the .25 cal business for a while.

I just got my Lilja #3 7mm pipe today and it's off to the 'smith on Wednesday to get fitted onto the rifle that's currently the .25-06 AI. I'm having it chambered in .280 AI so I can wage war on just about everything short of Grizz and Buff. I don't know what I'm going to do with the Douglas pipe... I'd like to keep it, but I have no use for it. I have the 6mm to shoot dogs on down and the 7mm for dogs on up... no need for a quarterbore anymore. ~JT
