I use Hornady 60 gr.V-Max in our coyote rifles and they work great. I found out that the Black Hills 68 gr. shoot almost to the same spot as the 60's, so bought some Hornady 68 gr. bullets to load and try out... I use TAC as my basic powder for the coyote load and it is very accurate..

Geez, I use 53gr speer HP's, 53gr Barnes FBX hp's, 55gr SP, 60gr SP, 62gr Partitions, and 65gr SP. Your basic 55gr Dogtown does fine. I use H335, BLC(2), and IMR4064.

i shoot mil-surp m855 62gr in my ar varmit gun for practice and plinking. when i hunt ground hog to deer size game i just pull the green tip bullet and replace it with sierra 62gr. soft points.

zero stays the same and round performs great.
