    I shot a coyote at 100yds with a 130gr matchking and what a hole. Were talking cantelope sized hole. The interesting thing is I shot one at the same distance with a 120gr nos bt and it only had a quarter sized hole. Im shooting 7828 powder and the velocitys are 3450 with 130gr bullet and 3550 with 120gr bullet. Do I need a faster burning powder?

    i think you have a great load i am using 175gr MatchKings in a 7mm SAUM with great results i would go to a heaiver projectile for longer shots as the performance is better and less wind drift. The 168gr MatchKings are also awsome they are very accurate.
