So long story short, I hosted a PRS match on a neighbor's private land and owe him big. He won't accept cash or any sort of payback, I have already tried. So instead I am planning on buying him some ammo and dropping it off at his farm/shop. He can't refuse delivery if I ding dong ditch right? I know he does quite a bit of coyote hunting and enjoys it. I also know he typically uses an AR15 with 55gr bullets but don't know the details on the gun or ammo.

I was looking online and stumbled across this on sale at midway right now Sierra. I have used Sierra in my match rifles and know they make good bullets. But I'm not a varmint/predator hunter. I only do a little bit of big game hunting. So I'm asking you guys for reviews/experience on the Sierra BlitzKing for coyotes, or would you recommend something different? I don't have time to reload right now, so I'm looking for factory ammo. This is a gift, so I want it to be nice, but it doesn't have to be expensive for no reason either.

I mainly use a .223 with factory ADI ammo that uses the 55gr Sierra blitzking. Shot placement is key. They are explosive though.

THIS stuff seems to get really good reviews also, plus its affordable too which is nice because the I can afford to buy him more. Thoughts?

A bit late here but the Hornady 53gr Superformance Varmint is the Go to ammo for the Luck Duck guys on " The Last Stand. The guys from Fox Pro use this too. I use it as well with a Black Hole Weaponry 18" barrel in 1/8 twist. Its very accurate. The 55gr Prairie Enemy is very accurate for me too but have not shot a coyote with it yet. I use it in the BHW barrel and a JP barrel in 1/8 as well. The PE is now $15.99 a box on Midway. They dropped the price this week from $17.50. I will be grabbing another 1000 of the PE. for sure.
