you are probably correct Ramos. I usually use the 40's in my 204, and 55's in my 20-250AI... and would probably use 39-40's in the VT for coyotes, if my barrel twist will stabilize them.

But then again.... Guys are also using the 25-30's in their 17 cal rifles...Hmmm.... got me thinking now.

This seems to be the consensus with regard to shooting coyotes with the lighter .20 cal bullets. The 35gr Berger is the preferred choice on coyotes, but for PD's and ground squirrels the 32gr tipped bullets are the preferred choice as their thin construction along with higher velocities seem to give good aerial affects with devastating explosiveness. I've shot some 32gr Vmax out of my 204R and to say they have rapid expansion, is an understatement.

I have a 20-222 going together right now and the first load that gets worked up is 35gr Bergers and H322.

My 20 Vartarg is a pac-nor 11 twist that I use for coyote hunting. My go to bullet is Berger 40gr. They are very fur friendly also. I used 39gr BK. And had to many splashes up close. Iím planning on testing some Black Hole 35 gr this fall. Very impressive caliber!!

Almost time to get out the 20 Vartarg and shoot some Groundhogs! You got to love the Little powerhouse 20 VT!

Yes, Sir! Ours is ready for rockchucks and gray diggers (ground squirrels). Just waiting for the new crop to show themselves before declaring war.

20 Vartarg has seen very little action this summer so far due to me shooting 17 Ackley hornet, 17 TAC and 22 Dasher. I will take it on a Groundhog hunt this week. Its been way to long sitting in the corner.
