    Those used to shoot really good in an old rifle that I had that’s long gone. I think it was an old Marlin bolt gun. It blew stuff up pretty good with that ammo. Had been back around 90 or so. Wish I kept it. It was a fun little gun. It didn’t shoot as good as the Ruger though. The American line is “made super economy style” imo with some cheap materials and pot metal…but boy, they sure shoot good.

    the cci maxi mag TNT is a very explosive 30 grain round with a huge hollow point and very thin copper jacket. very effective for eliminating pests but probably not the best choice on small critters you want to eat

    I’m guessing they’re probably a rebranded Hornady projectile with a different tip? I tried them in my rifle and they don’t group anywhere as tight as the hornady vmax ammo. Think they were about an inch to an inch and a quarter groups at 100 yards if I remember. The 50 grain bullets most recommend for predators grouped about the same as the CCI’s. Even though it’s not an ideal predator caliber I’m sure the Vmax ammo would drop a coyote out to a 100 to a 150 yards with a well placed shot.

    OK, I got a group with the Hornady 30 gr v-max from a Marlin M983S bolt action rifle. It’s cold, so 25 yds off the back porch, 5 shots into 0.45 “ with 4X scope.

    To my advantage, the trigger breaks at 14 ounces on mine, and I a 3.5 to 14 power scope, which probably helps as well. It’s warming up here a little bit. I was out in the backyard with the new to me browning nomad recurve I got from the church store last week for 35 bucks. Just put on a stick on rest and tied on some nocks this afternoon. Also tried some new xx75 2117 arrows. It seems to shoot pretty decent at 15 yards. It’s 54 pounds at 28 inches and I’m pulling back 31 1/2 so got my work out. I didn’t group as good as you.
