And it is frontal and broadside ribcage shots.
But lacks on quartering away/straight away shots.

Bottom line, if you're gonna (need to) kill coyotes in every scenario that takes place in the fields, a V_Max bullet has shown to me, the very worst bullet other then the Barnes Varmint Grenade to do the job.

I don't know how often your group shoots at runners as you don't show that much in your films but if you do it(and not show it),I'll guarantee it would show lots of " Not DRT's".!

I'm sure you guys can afford better bullets.

If not, I'll send you a couple boxes of Sierra #1365's to try.

Regardless, we can all agree to disagree. I don't care what you use to stack bodies. I'm just here telling the original poster, don't be afraid of a VMax, we kill a helluva lot with them.

I recently picked up a tikka 22-250 with an 8 twist barrel. Im thinking if using 50, 53, or 55 grain v max. I donít need heavier as I have a 6 cm slinging 108 grain bullets if I want heavy.

Of those three it would be an easy choice for me, 53gr Vmax all day everyday. thumbup1

Well it's advertised as a varmint bullet, so it's not intended to pass duty/defense barrier and penetration standards.


and while its not intended to pass duty/defense barrier/penetration standsards...

i sure as heck wouldnt wanna get hit with a bullet designed to start to expand and frag/enegry dump starting in the 4" of penetration range.
