22/250 new load need testing yet
« on: March 28, 2011, 10:06:58 AM »
I've been using a 36gr grenades and liking the accuracy out of the T/C but I don't think there right for my coyote shooting. I have them Smoking at around 4300 fps, they seam to be braking up on contact and not when there in side the animal. I have hit several knocking them down only to have them spring back up and run as fast as a normal coyote. I'm sure there hit very hard and will die but I have tracked some of them over a mile and still no fur...When they do go in they have been devastating, but most have exited the coyote and left a huge hole or many holes. I'm going to try a 50 gr V-Max with 33.5 gr 8208/CCI 200 primer. It shouldn't be as fast and I hope the bullet will preform differently. I need to get it in to a coyote soon, they group all touching at 100 yards.The wind should not bother them as much either, I hope.

i messed with the grenades in the 243 a little and found them to be ok, but i was running into the same thing with g-hogs, i think if you slowed them a bit they tend to stay together a bit better, but i changed up went to the v-max and they just are ugly on hogs!
when in doubt shoot twice

I promise you, a 50 grain vmax at 22-250 velocities is a coyotes worst nightmare.
thats a kind of hell words cannot describe. don't be surprised if you turn one ones insides to liquid mush.
