Title: 100 dead coyotes!
Post by: Tracker0721 on December 10, 2019, 08:20:51 PM
In a perfect world... 50 grain nosler ballistic tip/varget. My 22-250 likes these at 200 yards. Should last me the fur season. Watching some coyote hunting on the tv and the pup has his nose touching it, head sideways, and a little grumble occasionally. He wants to hunt em too I guess!

My 22-250 loves the 50 grain Nosler ballistic tip, best with 38 gr of H380

Its a wicked caliber.   The poachers I used to know on the Rez loved it.   Crazy accurate and precise.  My Dads choice was the 220 swift, mine the 25-06, brothers was the 22-250 with Sierra bullets.  Alot of coyotes bit the dust

Only thing better than a 22-250 is a 22-250 AI  :tup:

Very nice!

The first reloading I ever did was 200 rnds of .223 with those 50 gr nosler ballistic tips and 26gr Varget.  They were very accurate and took a few rockchucks and prairie dogs.

Now I usually use Hornady V-max or Z-max in 50gr and Varget or H335 for powder.  I've had good results with those too.

My brother just got a Savage 12FV in 22-250 from a black friday sale.  Will be looking for a load for that soon.

Same here.  Mine is just a cheap Stevens with a Bushnell 4-12 on it.  With a bipod it makes 1 ragged hole at 100 yards

Wish we could use decoy dogs in this state :(. From what I know it was something WDFW took away from us on there own.
