Tearing it up very nice. Overall how have you felt with performance in a whole with the sierra gameking hpbt 55 grain bullets. I started loading those and have great target performance and canít wait to use them on dogs.

Thanks.  I'm happy with the Sierra gameking hpbt 55gr bullets.  For the past few years i've used mostly 50 grain v-max's.  I have had many good bang-flop shots with the v-max's, but i've also had a few where I hit coyotes in shoulders and the bullets splashed on the surface and didnt' penetrate and the coyote ran off.  These Sierra gamekings definitely stay together and penetrate better.  I think this is the 6th coyote I've shot with the sierra gamekings. The coyotes don't seem to drop "dead in their tracks" quite as quickly as when they get hit with a good shot placement with a 50 grain v-max, but when I hit them in a shoulder or other less-than-ideal location, they do pile up within 20' of where they were hit.

I read that the Sierra HPBT gamekings have low BC and are affected by wind quite a bit, so they are not a great long range bullet.  But most of my shots are under 100 yds so that's not a factor for me.  If i'm hunting in a spot where I expect to take shots out to 200 or 300 yds I'll probably grab a box of v-max's.

The coyote I shot a few weeks ago that was standing broadside on a dirt pile when I shot it (The video is on here), The bullet passed through the coyote and went into an alder tree behind it. I found the bullet entry hole on the tree. It was a small clean hole that looked like I had shot it point blank with a .22lr.  I took my knife and tried to dig the bullet out of the  tree. I dug about 1" into the tree and then started scraping lead off the back of the bullet. I gave up because I didn't want to kill the tree.  The main takaway, is that on a 60 yd broadside shot through the vitals, the bullet passed through the coyote and didn't hardly expand at all (if at all).  The coyote fell dead about 5' from where it was standing when it was hit.  Based on past experience, if I had made that shot with a 50 grain v-max: 50% chance bullet would not have exited, 50% chance there would have been a 4"+ blowout hole on the backside.

Overall I'm happy with the performance of these Sierra 55grain HPBT gamekings. I suspect they will work great for you too. I look forward to hearing your success stories with them.

I appreciate your feedback on the bullets birdshooter. My prior experience with the 55 grain blitzking bullets were subpar with minimal peneteration on quartered toward or chest shots not reliably making it to the vitals resulting in multiple shots to keep them down. That was after opening the dogs up and seeing the terminal performance to know exactly why they wouldn't stay down. So have been working on loads with the 223 and 22-250 with the sierra gameking bthp 55 gr.  and have had awesome accuracy between 1/3 to .9inch at worst averaging .6 inch 3 shot groups at 100 yards with both guns. And have kept under MOA out to 300 so far with both guns. So excited to keep working on those loads as it is same bullet in both guns so stocked up enough to last me a bit for them. Last year the bigger guns were coming out on dogs do to making the switch so happy to go back to the little guns.

You're welcome. That's great to hear that they are shooting well for you out to 300 yds.

Shot another one this morning.  This was the first Yote in a while that ran after the shot.    It spun and ran about 40 yards before piling up.  55gr Blitzking at 3775.  275 yard shot.

Caught this one mousing in the middle of a field at about noon.
Federal target 22 long rifle lead non jacketed bullet out of a Ruger 10-22. The box says 1200 fps. Quartering to at 98 yards. He went about 60 yards. The bullet did not exit.

Good shot skybuster!  275 yds is respectable.

Nice job Lucky1!  Years ago my brother shot his first coyote with my ruger 1022 at about 100 yds.  Federal bulk ammo. Coyote ran about 15 yds and dropped.  While not my first choice of caliber, it can be done.
