Anyone have any experence with this bullet?
I am huntin for a good coyote bullet. Did not find
The 123CC to be the answer. Ditto of the wonderful
129gr SST........(go to deer loading) To many run off's, with both of them.
I had excellent luck with 70gr Varmageddon in my 243! So just wondered if anyone has tryed this new
90gr in their 6.5 ?????

Well since no one ever replied to this post. I finally
found these at Graff n Son. And they are on the way
So will have a report on how they shoot out of a Tikka barrel and how they perform on " Brush Wolves" here in Maine. I have had great luck with the
70gr Armageddons in my .243 so assume these should work similar.

Finally laid one down with the new bullets, they are exiting the barrel of the Tikka at 3250.
Amazing report back off the side; instantaneous kill at 300yds. So far so good.

Scotty;
Bout the same as Blitz Kings. No exit and Massive
Damage inside. When you pick them up and shake em
Tons of blood sloshing around in the huge cavity created.
The bullet works exactly like it's supposed to on a 35lb medium. I would guess it wouldn't be worth squart on a 300 lb animal........
Impressive humaine bullet on a coyote.......hard to best it.
I had Lousy luck with 123/129/139gr bullets. With holes blow out thru the backside and animals dragging themselves off wounded; but this 90gr Varmagetton doesn't do any of that crap! Slaps em HARD and kills em instantly..........I know one animal is NOT a fair accesment:
But it sure worked great on this first one.!!!
See the 3x18 ???
E

Well, it sounds like you got everything you were looking for with them. Sounds like it plants them!

I see you got some serious eyes on that rifle.
