Re: What's the best factory load for wolf with a .223
I know this is a way old thread, but if it were my shot to take, I would want something a little bigger than a 223 to chase wolves. Now to answer your question, If I were confined to the .223, I would launch 80 grain bergers. This is assuming your barrel as the twist rate to make it fly strait.
Now if I am going to shoot my choice caliber, I would chase wolves with a .25-06 and launch 105 grain bergers.
.308 Howa 1500, 24" varmint barrel, Harris bipod Bell & Carlson MkII tactical stock. 4-14x50 tactical scope from Wonder Optics.
