Haven't gotten out much this season, but finally got my first coyote with the 6DTI. He charged in to about 40 yards and the veered left where I hit him on the run with a 55gr NBT-LF. Bang-flop.

Been having a great time with my 6DTI, predators drop instantly from the 55gr NBT-LF at 3545 fps. Usyally a tiny entry, no exit or small exit, zero blood.



Another one.


Another one.


Another one.


No exit even on this cat, front chest shot.

300 yards proved fatal on this buck with an 80gr TTSX @2975 fps. Quartering away, the bullet struck high in the lung, through the spine, and lodged under the skin of the neck on the opposite side. He dropped in his tracks and never moved.





The TTSX appears to have retained 99% + weight. I'm a little surprised it did not pass completely through, but it performed perfectly. Impact velocity was about 2200 fps. The thwack! sound of the impact was loud and clear from 300 yards away.

the 6DTI is the only thing that keeps my DTECH 243 wssm in the safe.

Nice work, and that's an awesome bullet out of a 6mm. My wssm shoots them into itty bitty groups and they drop whatever they hit.

Cleaned up the 80gr TTSX and weighed it. It was 79.6gr meaning it retained 99.95% of it's weight. Max expansion was about 0.450".

If coyotes are the main target, keep the 6DTI, it will whack a deer plenty well. If you are shooting hogs, maybe the 25, they are a toss up but the 6 has a better selection of lighter bullets
