    My kid picked up a Savage model 10 in 223. Wondering what would be a good coyote round? Thanks

    Try a couple combos and see what the gun likes best. I use to have a 223 and it really liked the Sierria 53 gr match hollow point. The bullet worked well on fur as well.

    Hornady 55gr V-Max makes em take a dirt nap. Sub MOA groupings in my Savage model 10.

    That twist rate should handle larger bullets but, try out Black Hills Blue Box 50grain V Max as they do a fine job on yotes.

    For any of you guys that like the 55 gr v-max, you definitely have to try the53 gr v-max superformace from hornady. Faster velocity and hits harder than the 55's. Shoots amazing out of my bushy and savage.
