    Always loved the Federal HST...

    One of the most overlooked ammo rounds out there. I loved the shape and the cut channels that erupt when it mushrooms, and then I stumbled across this today...

    Now if they only made them in .45 LC for this beautiful beastie:

    A deadly flower. Imagine this hitting someone. I'm sooo glad I had a friend intro these to me a few years back. If all goes well I should have a few in some water tests in a few weeks, along with a testing out of the Judge 3" PD.

    .22 rounds for coyotes?? You must have tiny coyotes. I use the 30.06 150 or 180gr jsp. Screw the .22. lol

    If they are small coyotes, I like CCI mini-mag high velocity hp.

    Oooooh, those necked down things. lol. Haven't shot many, but with the velocities, I'd go with a standard to slightly hot load with a good jsp. With enough velocity that jsp mushrooms out fantastically, and iirc the 22-250 has the high velocities to take advantage of a jsp, likely even more damage from a hp, but I'm not sure if velocity suffers. I hand tune all my sp rounds that I hunt with so... I'm weird.

    Are you running the savage by chance?
