I seldom ask a "what is your opinion" or a "which do you prefer" question as I prefer to try things and make up my own mind. I think I'll make an exception in this case. I have a Stevens Model 200 in .223 remington(1:9 twist). It has a Nikon Pro-staff 3x9x40 scope in Realtree camo on top sighted 1 inch high at 100yds. I can (from a rest) put 5 shots into one hole at 100 yards consistantly with Prvi Partisan 75 grn HPBT match ammo. I get "hunting" accuracy from 55 grn Hornady spire points and 62 grn Brown Bear soft points. Hunting accuracy being 2-3" @100 yards. Which of these 3 would you use for coyote,bobcat and/or wild pig? Shots can be anywhere between point blank and 300yds. I guess the better question would be,is the 75 grn match bullet good for the mentioned game animals?
