There's a fair amount of San Diego folks on the forum. Nice Town, & I go there often.Well, I've shot a couple dozen loads or there abouts through my 204 & here is where I am at "so far". 40gr Nosler ballistic tip bullet... b.t's are my absolute favorite coyote bullet in all my bolt guns. It hammers them.30grs BLC-2 powder CCI 450 "mag" primer Winchester case velocity = 3800 fps in 78 degree temp27 grs H4895 with Fed standard (non mag) match primer also did well at about 25 fps slower velocity. I understand the Sierra 39gr bullet is a very accurate one. However, if I remember right, Sierra themselves will tell you it is not a good coyote bullet. But Hey???Good Luck Frank
