Stay away from the FMJ bullets. They wont expand and disperse energy when going thru an animal, nothing more than pin holes. They also have a tendency to ricochet and then who knows where they go. You also wont get them to shoot very good, so dont waste any time on them. They are by far the worst choice a person could make for a hunting bullet. Blasting ammo for an AR is one thing but a hunting bullet it is not.diverken159 said:Thanks guys for your input to this tread. I have only used rem 55gr. mc fmj so far in my rem 700 sps varmint rifle. Do not like the way they group. Going to make some reloads to see if i can tighten them up. What i was looking for is a bullet that will take out a yote with one good placed shot. One shot one kill.
A PSP is a Pointed Soft Point bullet (some companies call the spire points) and you will get good results from them. They will be more consistent in penetration than any plastic tipped bullet IMHO. I have been really down on vmax and ballistic tip bullets after I seen one splash on a coyote this last summer from no more than 50 yards and it was a solid hit. I still use alot of vmax bullets for my prairie dog rifles but I dont hunt coyotes with them anymore.Mr Mike said:What do you think about 5.56mm/223 55 gr psp ammo I get nice groups and there $ 13.99 per 25rds?
