I've loaded for my buddies model 10 and it shoots anything I load very accurate. In his the blind magazine is the limit to bullet OAL, so I load the bullets so they feed reliabaly in his mag and go from there.

For deer 95gr Combined Technology BTs are my favorite deer bullet, I've shot alot of deer with that bullet and they have all been a bang flop.

For coyotes I have 2 favorite loads. 75gr Hornady HPs at 3200fps, and Sierra 60gr HPs at 3600fps. Both do an excellent job and very rarely exit or leave any big holes (only time is if you hit shoulder blades).

For the Nosler 95gr Combined Technology BT I use:

RL 22 42.5gr (max load - work up to it to make sure there are no signs of pressure)
Rem 9 1/2 Primer
Remington Cases

Hornady 75gr HP
Win 760 powder - 44.0 gr this is middle of the road load around 3200fps - max load of 46.3gr at 3400fps
CCI 200 Primers
Remington Cases

Sierra 60gr HP
Varget - 43.0gr @ 3600fps - Max load work up to it with caution
Win WLR primers
Remington Cases

These are my loads - work up to them carefully and watch for signs of presure. I'm not responsible for any accidents.
