Let me warn you in advance about the Sierra Varminter 60gr hp product # 1500My rem 700ADL loved the bullet! Loved to go real fast! On impact with 5 different coyotes it ripped the hide off them! I called Sierra they said that they had been having the problem for a while and the only suggestion they had was to slow the bullet down!This is my rifles favorite load! How do I slow down its best load?3 Blew the hide off the shoulder.1 Blew the hide and the right ear off!1 never recovered!All but the last one took 2 or more shots to put em down!
