I’ve been working on some coyote loads. I’m loading nickel plated lead bb. My 2 3/4” hulls are Winchester, Remington Gun Club and federal top gun. My 3” are Remington Nitro Turkey hulls. I’m using blue dot powder and Remington rp12 and sp12 wads. My patterns are really good to 30-35 yards but they open up too much beyond that. I’m only getting 8-10 hits on a 8x11 target. I’m switching to the Ballistic Products TPS wad but I can’t find any data on the hulls I’m using with that wad. All of the data is for cheddite and Fiocchi hulls. I’m also going to try dropping the powder charge in my current loads. I dropped from 35.5 to 34 already. I’m going to try 32 next. My 3” I dropped from 38 to 34 with a bit of improvement. The 3” load called for 40.
