what calibre for longer range coyote shooting!

Hello guys I am new here and I am looking for some help. I want to be able to shoot coyotes from 50 yards to 7-800 yards. I have been looking and reading about 6.5 creedmore, 6.5x284, 6.5/06 I am not saying this is what I am going to have to go with but those are what I have been reading about lately. Any and all help appreciated and thanks in advance.

    I shoot coyotes all winter long. I use a .243 because its common and it works fabulous. I use a 105 gr berger. Other times I have used a 4 wheeler and a pistol

    I second the .243. It's a fantastic round with great ballistics and will devastate coyotes at those ranges with very low recoil.

    I use 223's, 243's and a 25-06. Rifles, optic's and loads set up strictly for coyotes. So I guess it is a matter of what other uses you have for the rifle. I would not want to pack most of mine all day long hunting medium game. I have been looking at the Creedmore for a long range rifle. Just because. My 25-06's will run neck and neck with it. But playing with a new caliber is a lot of fun.

    I'm a big fan of the .243 and AI, so that's my pick. However, a .308 is a great yote cartridge also and components are plentiful.
