Depends on the barrel twist, I have a 1:12 and shot the 53gr Hornady vmax at 3700 fps and group .380 @ 100 yards. Rabbits and 'Yotes die if I do my part. If the gun has a 1:9 or faster, go with a 55 grain or heavier bullet. If it is 1:10-1:12 stay in the 45-55 range, 1:14 then the 30-45 grain bullets will work.
But I also like to try every brand, every weight to see what is best.
Do you reload? I've used 55gr Sierra Gameking BTHP's for years. They are loaded by Federal, and the factory loads were very accurate in my rifle. I started reloading this bullet and can pretty well duplicate the factory load, though slowing it down a little makes it into a real tack driver.
This bullet rarely exits coyotes around here where average weight is 30-40lbs.
If you start getting into heavier bullets you are more likely to get exit wounds that tear up fur in my experience.
Coyote skins are bringing pretty good money right now, so If you looking at a fur friendly bullet you need it to either explode shortly after entry, like speers 52 HP or my favorite is a Barnes TXS is what ever flys in your rifle. twist is something you might need to know. longer twists like faster smaller bullets, tighter twists usually like heavier bullets.
I've had good luck with the Barnes as they rarely leave a exit bigger than a quarter to sew.
