    Hi All,
    New to the forums and have a reloading question. I'm looking for a good coyote load to shoot out of my AR15 in .223 with a 1:8.5 twist barrel. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    If you're trying to get any range out of it i'd look at the 60 gr. polymer tips and/or the 65 Sierra Game King. 69 Nosler Comp. bullet worked good for me too.

    Its not an exact science what bullet to use generally.I just made a head on a shot coyote at 300 yds with my AR-15. 55gr V-max in front of 26.3 grs of TAC. That dog sat down trying to locate where the call was coming from giving me time to get comfortable and make the shot.

    I'm in on the 65gr Sierra Gk with H335 {25.0grs} and CCI #41 primer.. with Win brass. "In a AR15" load is not for bolt rifles...
