The best I have seen is two brands loaded with 60gr VMax. One is the Black Hills ( this is the one I have seen shot most)and the other is the Hornady TAPS. Both loaded with the 60gr VMax.
I reload and rarely shoot a 223 at predators but I hunt with guys that do and have seen a bunch shot with that round also hogs and they have culled does with it as well.
It's even pretty much as fur friendly as far as the .223 goes being fur friendly.

The Hornady Superformance loaded with the 53gr is a good round too and very fast and accurate but not quite as reliable of a quick killer on coyotes and not as fur friendly.

Fiocchi 40 gr V-Max and 50 Gr V-Max are the most consistent and accurate factory ammo I have found for P-Dogs and coyotes.


While I don't recommend it for pigs, I took a 248# boar with the Fiocchi 50 gr V-max at 165 years. He was DRT from an earhole shot, from a solid rest.
