They are very accurate and suppose to penetrate and explode leaving no exit wound..You can buy lighter bullet for caliber because they are very effective..I have not killed anything with them yet..Still waiting on the first Coyote..

On occasion I use the 36 grain version in my .223 with good success. There is very little fur damage to both coyote and fox as long as the bullet doesn’t hit the shoulder bone. When penetrating soft tissue, the bullet completely fragments within two inches after entering. The fragments of the bullet will continue to penetrate throughout the body cavity another three inches. However, I have found two issues with this bullet. First, if the bullet strikes a surface bone the bullet will fragment/explode very quickly and can cause a fair amount of fur damage. The second issue is if you are hunting in brushy areas and the bullet strikes a small twig or large blades of grass it has a tendency to fragment before impact. With that being said, if I’m hunting fox/coyote in open country it’s my go to bullet.
