    I am looking for some good bullets to use in an AR15 for coyotes. Shots are limited to about 300 yards. I have the brass prepped and ready to go. I just need to figure out what a good bullet needs to top them off.

    I don't know what twist you have, my guess would be 1/9 if so any bullet from 55 gr to 70 gr would work.I would us a 60 gr nosler with 25 grs of H-335, or a BlitzKing in that range. Tim

    Iv been using the hornady 55 vmax in mine lately and I really like it. Shoots great and the last coyote I busted with it was just over 300 and he didnt know what hit him. Im thinking about going a little heavier though. Probably the berger in a 64gr or something. Whatever you choose will probably work great. Good Luck!
