Re: shot in the 220

I shoot 50 gr v Max molys and zero 2" high at 100 yds. I'm at 3900 fps out of a 1 in 16 twist 26" bbl. I am 3.5" low at 300yds. I'd bet your real close to the same. I'm sure someone on here shoots the same load you are and can give you a better answer.

Re: shot in the 220

My Mark III is 2.5" high at 200 yds. 55 gr. 3813 m.v. Don't know about yotes but g-hogs I hold on nose at 300 yds. hits in chest-throat, after 300 I start at top of head then cross hairs on top of head and so on out to 500. What gun is your swift...later

Re: shot in the 220

i just ran it on my ballistic program for you . Try 2.5 inch high at 100 should be on at 300 but all this plays in to a perfect world. The only problem here is at 175 you will be 3.5" high. I would zero at 200 yards and learn holdover or dial the scope. down load a ballistic calculator there are some free ones on line and work by it.

Re: shot in the 220

Nice, I've had a Mod77 tang red pad in 270 since 70's great gun. Always thought to have one lighter to carry my mk.III to heavy strickly chuck gun. Would like faster twist swift so i could use heavier bullets mine is 1-14, better a faster twist for swift the gettin .223. Look on handloader.com too. Data is good to read but shootin at the different ranges is best all things are alittle different. Love talkin 220's not alot of guys to do so. Best .224 cal. ever made all the rest try to catch up. Good Luck good shooten...later

Re: shot in the 220

Sounds to be that same rifle I'm shooting. Is yours the 77v? I absolutely love my 77v in 220 swift. This was the first rifle to shoot under 1/2" 5 shot group for me. It might leave a nasty hole in coyote so be careful in bullet selection.
