Default best 22 magnum coyote load

Hey yall, I am looking at buying a Henry lever action .22 magnum in the near future. And I was wondering what you think about the gun. Also I was wondering what would be the best choice of ammo for coyotes out to about 50-75 yards. Ohh yeah, do yall know of any good scopes for a .22 magnum, but not too expensive,thanks.[/align]

40 grain hollow points. I do believe Remington put out a 50 grain hollow point as well. The hollow points will work better than the soft points. Keep ranges below 100 yards. A Nikon ProStaff scope would fit your bill nicely.

I like the soft points made by remington. But for 50-75 yards any of them should do with a good shot.

I use the 33 gr. accutips from remington. Havent had the chance at a coyote with them but they performed well on a fox a month or so ago. No damage to the pelt at all.Very pleased with theyre accuracy also.

35 grain vmax at 2265 fps- They're a little pricey though, and you're not supposed to use them in a semi-auto.
