A: This Hornady ammo would work well for coyotes. However, hogs are generally tougher to kill than coyotes, and you might want to choose a more strongly constructed round that would allow for more penetration through tough muscle tissue. Heavier bullet weights, such as Hornady 75gr HPBT, or bonded bullet construction, such as Federal Fusion, would be a better choice for both coyotes and hogs.

A: Not necessarily. While polymer tip bullets are capable of great accuracy and precision, many long range shooting competitions are won with boat tailed hollow point bullets similar in design to this Hornady 52 gr BTHP load. The only way to tell which is better for you is to try each one in your rifle(s).

A: Neither one is ideal for personal defense, although our choice would be the 52gr BTHP. If your rifle can stabilize 69 or 75/77gr ammo, those would be our recommendations.
