i live in az. i have killed over 250 coyotes and seen that many more shot. the .22 mag is not s sure killer of coyote. what akleyman said is worth repeating. Keep shooting. the 40 win hp is best for coyotes . 40-60 yards unless you shoot them in the head/neck. i have not tried the 30-33 grain bullets. the 22 mag is deadly on fox DRT. [/quote]

From hunting groundhogs with a .22 mag, I can see that the cartridge is not what it should be for coyotes. Even good solid hit groudhogs will run a distance before dropping. If they are sitting on or near the den, then they can easily get in the hole. Head shots are a different matter, since they drop in their tracks.

Amen to that! From the shoulder up they don't even flinch after hitting the ground.

The Win 40gr JHP is the least fancy but absolute best all around bullet for the 22 mag. It just plain works, and usually is one of the most accurate rounds as well.

Are you guys talking about the dyna point? Thats all Walmart carries in 22 mag ammo and it is not a solid copper jacket but looks more like copper coated lead. I had not tried it cause I wanted to shoot a true copper jacket round. Coul you specify the model/brand of winchester ammo?

Winchester Super X 40gr. HP is a true jacketed bullet just like a centerfire bullet. They come in a grayish silver box.The Dynapoint come in a white box they are 45gr. and are copper washed.

That's it! The grey box winchesters.

If they were to put the same ammo in a shiney black box with red splatter painted on it & dip the exposed lead in lime green paint; that's all anyone would ever buy/shoot. Some reason plain, old fashion isn't sexy enough. Everyone want's to shoot new/flashy.

You're both wrong,,, the box is definitely Silver. LOL

Kidding,,, I couldn't agree with ya more.
Colorful plastic (err polymer) sells..

Crappy pic, but maybe this'll help.

40gr JHP

Here is the Winchester load. Thank's to Coleridge, Marco and some others, I gave this one a try. It shoots well in my Ruger 77/22. I have already dropped a coyote and some groundhogs with this one.








Ruger 77/22 VMBZ, .22 magnum, Leupold 3x9 scope with Leupold dot reticle, Warne rings

I have tested at least 8 different 22mag bullets in my rifle
the Rem.33 was the most accurate hands down.but I got a lot of fragmentation and weight loss.I used the Fed 50 for a long time it hits hard and pennitrates deep,not much expantion and verry good weight retainage best groups out of my 982Vs was 1.5"@100yds.Win super x 40's expand like a big game bullet,pennitrate deep and very uniform,some weight loss but not bad.1" to 1.25"@ 100yds.If I could only have one it would hands down be the super x.Ive seen this bullet hit way harder than than you would think it could.
For edible critters the 50 might be a better choice,due to less expantion.But at the end of the day new offerings aside
The old plain win is still at the top of the heap for my money.
Bob.

I had never owned a .22 Mag. When I sent my Remington 597 .17 HMR in for the complimentary .22 Mag conversion, I felt short an ATV gun. So, I picked up a Marlin bolt .22 Mag with the tubular magazine.




In testing some ammo for accuracy, I got the following results. All 3 shot groups at 50 yards:

Remington Premium .33 grain


Hornady 30 grain


Others







The 597 with the new .22 Mag Barrel.....Not so much. )-:

The Marlin lives on my Rubicon. I don't expect to test it on Coyotes as it will mostly feed on the smaller pesky critters that roam the ranch. When Tucker and I get serious about the coyotes a hungry center fire will be on board.

BTW: When sighted strait up at 50 yards the first hold over hash on the Burris Ballistic Plex is right on at 100 yards.

Anybody use the hornady critical defense for Yotes? Any reason why not ?

This one seems like it would be good
