I would consider the .260 Rem as I've heard alot of good about this cartridge. If I didnt factor in the idea of sharing ammo.

.243 All the way. .260 would be second because you CANT shoot as many big game animals as you could potentially shoot varmints. That's just obvious. You could shoot more coyotes in a day, than you might shoot deer in a year.

I feel the creedmore is more at home in a gas gun, because of the mag restrictions, but if you're looking for coyote loads, I'm betting that's not a concern either.
c_bass16; this is random but I'm scktz from YT, We were having a conversation about making ghillie suits. I recognized you from the pic of your rifle !
