    Predator pill?

    I got a new Rem700 .243 for fathers day to use on predators and deer. A couple weeks ago I called in and shot my first coyote with it at 305yds. I was shooting the same 95gr sst that I used for deer this year. The problem was I blew a hole in him the size of a softball. It was a little beyond standard pelt damage! I was thinking of picking up some 58gr VMax but was curious what some of you thought of this round.

    I shoot a .264 DPMS for my coyote gun with the 95gr. VMax. Very accurate load for my gun, but it's not very nice to pelts. Looks like you pushed a softball through a coyote.

    You might try the sierra Blitz King........V-Max has a bad habit of blowing up fur.
