    Shot some Nosler Varmageddon 223, with a buddy this weekend. I think they were 55 grn that were very impressive at 500 yards. I had no idea that a 223 could be so accurate at that range. The ones he had I think might have even have been factory ammo, Barnes maybe?

    I use hornady spire tip. I have taken deer and coyote with it. Never have had a coyote move from where it was shot at, unless it was running, then it just rolls a bit. Deer I have shot out to 400 yards with and they dont tend to go very far with a good heart or lung shot.
