I live in CA, and I am looking for a inexpensive ($500-900) semi-auto for ~300 meters(yards) varmint hunting. I found a Kel-Tec su-16Ca or a Ruger Mini-14 in .223.
Can I successfully hunt Coyotes with eater of these scoped rifles? I am a C&R (03FFL), and my rifles are large bore (6.5 to 8mm), and I've always use open sights.
Do you have any other suggestions?
