Bullet choices...

New to the 6.8, have had different thoughts on bullet choice, originally I had leaned toward the 90 gn. bullets from Sierra and Speer, my intended uses include coyote,(2 and 4 legged) at short to moderate distance w/ an Eotech, after having read numerous posts on this forum, I ordered 1500 115 gn. bullets(Sierra MK's and Remmy 115 FMJ's), some of your posts talk about better accuracy w/ the 90's, how well do they hold-up at any distance? My experience would lean toward heavier bullets beyond 200 yds. Forgive me, newbie(to the 6.8), I appreciate any and all input, criticism, also, which powders have performed best for you, I have a fair amount of H335, that was my intended powder. Thanks, steer me in the right direction! Russ

The 90gr TNT's should work quite well for Coyotes. The Remington 115gr FMJ is a good training bullet for CQB type stuff. I fired 25 of them into a quarter size group at 25 yards in aimed rapid fire the other day. I wouldn't use them for any kind of hunting as I don't know what the terminal ballistic performance would be. Welcome to the 6.8 but beware, it's addictive! :D
