    My two favorite rounds for predators are the 55grn vmax out of my 22-250 and 58grn vmax out of my .243.

    When I use the 22-250, its 52 gr Amax at a little over 3700, still my best round is 243wssm 55gr balistic tip. I must be the only one using Amax on dogs.

    For close to medium range I use a 223 with a 50 grain Nosler Ballistic tip goining at about 3200 fps, and for long range I like my 243 with 100 grain Nosler BT soft points. I get them flying at about 3,100 fps

    Got my depredation permit coming and really enjoyed talking with the G&F guy. I got 120 days with renewal and I told him about my gear. He said most people that get a permit never get a kill. I plan to hunt until coyotes are gone, he did tell me that dogs do about as much damage as the coyotes. Dogs are a never ending problem, well some are ended. If my permit is in todays mail I will be hunting tonight. Infra red and night vision don't spook them and red light on quickly will give time for a quick shot. Only problem with permit is hunting on my land only.

    I like 70 grain ballistic tips from my 243. Usually blows up inside of them. Shot a few with my 7mm mag, but usually just zips thru them with the barnes x. Just hit them again.

    I use the same bullet in my 6mm Remington that I use for deer and antelope. That is a 100 gr. Nosler Partition at about 3100 fps. Yes I will have an exit hole, but it doesn't really tear them up that badly. I figure by using the same bullet and load that I hunt with for big-game, I will only get better shooting it and I don't have to worry about sighting in for just the varmint bullet that I might want to load.
