Last time here I asked about reloading my deer rifle and now it's time to start thinking of another pet rifle. Providing my ex ever gives me back the money she owes me I'm wanting to start coyote hunting
. Sounds like it's a lot of fun and a great reason to get a new gun. Also it's a year round sport. I'm looking for something in a 243 or 22-250 and that will be good out to ~500 (really long shot to me, more likely 350-400) and not too heavy for a lot of walking. It'll also account for a few groundhogs hopefully too.
The ones I've read about and sound okay are:
Savage Predator Hunter
Remington Model Seven Predator
Weatherby Sub-MOA Varmint
What do you think the pros and cons are of these and what one would you pick and why? I'm also open to caliber selection too, I'm leaning towards 243. I'm not worried about the hides, just dead coyotes. Any other reasonable priced rifles I should add to the list? I'd kinda like to stay in the above price range.
Thanks in advance,
