    Those .25 cal/100 gr. TSX are bad-to-the-bone @ 3500fps +... I've shot a bunch of coyotes and a Whitetail or two with'em out of the .25-06AI. Needless to say... anything that bullet touches is not a happy critter! Nice shooting, I still need to get out that way and pound a couple dogs with you... may have to wait untill after the baby arrives in early July, but we'll git-r-done one of these days. ~JT

    Just let me know when...just riding around in the mornings and not an everyday thing within 5 or 6 days I have shot 10 out the window and shot 4 in 1 morning.but I am seeing more in the area then I did before this wheelchair thing.guess these last 16 months gave them time to re-group....but anyway I have been sending the TSX's their way
    far as I'm concerned the fps that we are sending the 100g TSX anything Deer size and smaller

    Nope' I know it can be done cheaper but I like keeping my gun set up for year around and I don't mind spending a little extra to keep things that way...besides you can put a grapefruit in that hole /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gifand there is no looking for them, well except when they drop out of the scope

    I know what you're saying... I love the "red chunks"! I've shot a couple dozen coyotes with that bullet... I love the way they leave dog clockwork for about 30' sprayed randomly about the ground. Fur Friendly?... Ahhh, NO. But what's a pelt worth these days? I can tell you it ain't worth my time... that's for sure.

    I have been shooting the 100 grain Nosler B-Tip a lot lately. The velocity and ballistics are identical out to 600 yds, I haven't had to change my turret from the TSX load (that's the furthest I've shot it). Terminal performance is about the same, maybe even a little more messy... and I bought 100 of the "seconds" for $16 (that's about 1/4 the cost of the TSX). I shot one coyote about a week ago right in the face at 150 yds... one of his ears and a large chunk of skull landed about 45 feet away in right into Crab Creek!! ~JT

    I didn't know the TSX's opened up that hard.
    Man that's some serious terminal effect.

    I got a shot on a big male in a hayfield w/ my 25-06 and 100gr nos bt --> very humane let me tell you.
    Good luck w/the coyote reduction hunt ! -Mike

    ps- i usually wait until labor day to start shooting but spoke w/ some people who said please start asap.
