Hornady® Varmint Express® Ammo
ACCURATE AND NASTY
i have been using the 40 grain bullet for 2 years now and it proforms very well. It is by far the most accurate varmit round I have used. I get a 1/4" group at 100 yrds which is the most important thing to me. After all, if you can't hit it, your wasting your time. I have heard a lot of people stating that the round is to small for coyotes and other medium size predators. I have not experienced any problems with this myself. But, I would still gladly trade the ability to place the round exactly where I want it for the knock down power of other rounds. This round is extremly fast and flat shooting but , as one should expect, does drift at long range. It also does not do well with wind due to it's light weight. The speed does make up for some of this with the round spending less time subjected to the wind. I would highly recommend this round but it has to be used with some knowledge about ballistics. It's a small and light round and all the speed in the world will not make up for a poor shot choice.

very accurate, disappointing knockdown
I was very impressed with the accuacy of this ammo in my AR-15, but coyotes laugh at it. It took 2 good hits to put a coyote down at 75 yds. The first shot busted him right behind the left shoulder and knocked him down, he then proceeded to get back up, and slowly run away. A followup shot was pretty easy, but with most other .223 ammo I've used on coyotes, it's taken only 1 hit to put the coyote down immediately.
I won't be using the 40 grain for coyotes any more, because I don't like running the risk of having an injured animal get away and die later in pain.

Good round, a little expensive
Dropped some small pigs and large coyotes with this round.
Hard to beat. Not on the cheap side but worth the money for a sure kill even without a clean shot.
1/2 group at 100 yds.
This will be the only round i will hunt varmints with.
