Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

The 65 Sierra Gameking over ‘335 or Varget is good.
Piles of dogs have been taken with that bullet, deer don’t like em either.
55 Ballistic Tips and 55 Gamekings over ‘335.
If heavy is your thing I’ve had good luck with the 73 ELD. H4895 or Varget there depending on the rifle.

If coyotes are your target, the 40 gr Nosler BTs will drop em like a hot rock. They shoot well in my 8 twist AR. It seems that all of the energy stays in the coyote, unlike some heavier bullets. That’s all I used till the pigs moved in, and then I switched to the 65 gr GK.

Either 40 or 50 grain ballistic tips over Benchmark powder. I prefer 50 BT especially for runners where the target is the south end of a north bound coyote.

60 gr. VMax over TAC. Accurate and terminal.

My Remington AR 223 really likes a 55 SP bulk bullet, I'm thinking Hornady, and W748 powder.

A 55gr JSP over 25gr of 335 is pretty universally great.

I use H335 25.0 grn. and 55 grn. hollow points. Great accuracy and fast. I love V Max bullets best. But have been using Dogtown bullets by Nosler with great success. I tried Varget with no great results as I have been hearing. Good shooting.

How about a MK262 dupe load, or is that bullet too heavy?

I've got plenty of them and about an equal amount of 50 grain Blitzking loads, my initial hunch is the 50-grainers might be a better choice, but I dunno.

I use 2 loads for my AR that I shoot prairie dogs with then use the leftovers for coyotes with no issues.

50 gr vmax or NBT over 25.5 gr benchmark with CCI 400. Shoots accurate enough for prairie dogs and has killed every coyote I have shot at (so far). Shoots the same out of 3 different ARs and about .5ish moa +/- out of my bolt action.

40 gr vmax over 28 grs of varget (max load) with CCI 400. I have only shot 2 coyotes with this load but it put them down well.

Both loads seated to 2.23 to fit in the mags and easy to remember for the load data.

If you want to shoot lead-free, (which I have to in California), 27 grains of Tac with a 50 grain Nosler lead-free shot 1/2 inch groups off a bipod in my son's AR.

I tend to follow this pattern....

besides Benchmark you can find me using H 322, 2015 BR, or AR Comp....

but for bullets, I'd more commonly use Varmaggedon bullets from Nosler instead... and include either the 53 VMax or Varmaggedon...
