Anybody shot coyotes with this bullet and what is your opinion. Going through 26 inch 12 twist 204 ruger.

TNT... Hmmmm... TNT... Just sounds splashy doesn't it? The .22 and 6mm variants are. But they're supposed to be, because, TNT. Maybe the .20 will be different.

Make that 24 inch, my bad. Could they be worse than the varmint grenades?

A little info here. Sounds like they might be worth a try.

I got decent accuracy from them, but not like the 35 Berger. Didn't shoot any coyotes that I remember.

They have a short bearing surface, and make sure the case mouth is deburred and lubed the jacket is soft. I have some loaded up to try, it's just tough to leave the 40 gr Nosler bt.
