.257 roberts.need recommendations
I have a ruger .257 roberts that I havn't shot in years and a Shepherd scope i could put on it. Want to shoot long range for coyotes and targets and am wondering if maybe a 22-250, 223, or .25-06 would be better. I also want to target shoot at long range for fun.
Don't want to spend a ton, and could always pull a scope off another one of my rifles. I have a a leupold vari x III.
So , any reco's for caliber, and is there any good scope /rifle combos out there that have great reliability and value..Savage? trying to keep the rifle cost below $700
