I also shoot the 40g V-max out of my .222 Rem. They shoot 3600fps and 1/4" at 100 yards. I usually take this particular rifle for calling coyotes. It is a Rem 700 Adl with a 24" sporter barrel, but is superbly accurate. I have taken coyotes to 300 yards no problem. They drop like rocks when hit in the right spot. Exit wounds depend on whether I shoot them in the shoulder or behind, but usually they exit when no bone is encountered and they leave about a 1.5" hole out to 150 yards. At longer ranges, they dont open up so rapidly. I have been shooting the 40g Barnes VCL with excellent accuracy, and terminal performance as well out of my little .222 Rem.
