Wanting to work up some good coyote loads for my Savage Model 12 FCV 22-250, 26" Barrel 1 in 12. Just curious what some favorites are or what your recommendations would be. This gun shoots Hornady 55gr VMAX factory ammo very well.

52gr Amax and H4895 worked well before I rebarreled and punched mine AI

Thanks everybody. Just getting into reloading, I do have some very knowledgable friends to keep me out of trouble. Just trying to get a general consensus of what others like and get a starting point.

35.5 gr of 4895 with a Sierra 53 gr. flat based hp works good for me. Great load for chucks....Not super hot, but gets the job done and groups great in my M700 Varmint Special.

I like H380 because it meters so well. If you're loading up for a Pdog shoot, you can't be weighing charges. Unless, of course, you have a great deal of time on your hands.
Also, using the bulk 55gr Hornady or Core lokt bullets killed everything I could hit.

Contrary to the main stream per usual...

for prairie dogs or ground hogs...

30 grains of RL 7, 52 HP Speer...

MVs in the 3650 fps range....( I could push faster, but this more than does the job..) the 52 HP Speer is both accurate and explosive...

using 30 grains of powder, it heats up less quickly and if you don't get out their and make the barrel hot enough to brand cattle... it will increase the barrel life, using a lot of other powders...

plus RL 7 is always accurate in about anything I use it in...

Per Seafire:

I also endorse the 52 gr. Speer HP, I use 34-35 gr. of IMR 4064 with that bullet.

IMR 4895 works well also.

Some other great bullets in the 22/250 (at least in my 1x12 twist) are the Sierra 40 gr.HP and 60gr.HP.

Jrose49111: If you are interested in saving the hides of the Coyotes then I recommend the Speer 52 grain hollowpoint flat base bullets for this.
Do not use the Speer 52 grain hollowpoint boat tail bullets as these are a completely different bullet and perform very differently.
Best of luck to you.
