Moderately sized game is no match for the Remington .222, which happens to be a storied and proven round in American history. It served as the test bed cartridge for what we know today as the 5.56x45 and the .223 Remington, both of which are shot more than a billion times a year in the United States (significantly more, actually).
This Federal load of the proven small game and moderate sized game cartridge is a simple, straightforward version of this caliber. It offers a nicely balanced approach to a round that is more than suitable for coyotes; small and medium deer and other game in that size range. The speed of delivery on the soft pointed projectile means it will be a deadly shot; the flat trajectories the .222 is famous for means it will be on target.
The 50 grain soft point bullet is moving out of the barrel at 3140 feet per second velocity and offers 1095 ft. lbs. of energy at the muzzle. This is perfectly suited for varmint hunting as well, and will easily dispatch groundhogs and other animals at distances out to about 450 yards very effectively.
