The 22-250 is good on coyotes but i wouldn't give it an 880yd round. Maybe 400yds. The reason why I'd only give it only a 400yd rating is because of barrel twist rate and bullet weight. Most factory barrels are a pretty slow twist. Now if you were to get a decent twist rate, 7.5 and stick an 80grn berger in it, you'll give it a little more room to move. The increased bc on the heavy bullet is where it's at.
I'm only shooting a 50grn nosler BT at 3500fps in a 12 twist. 26" barrel. It does great on fur if that's what your asking, but i definitely wouldn't push it to far. If you want to push it, move up to a 243 and a bigger bullet.
It's the wind that'll get ya with the 22-250, on calm days we've shot them out to 800 yards and minute of coyote but it does not take much wind and your SOL, a 243 shines a bit more for long range coyotes.

I think the 22-250 Caliber would do just fine and it's going to reach out further than the smaller Caliber Rifles plus if You go with a 55-60 or heavier bullet it would do fine in moderate wind,Your not going to call or see many Coyotes if the winds a constant 25+ MPH any way!
I was thinking about getting a Ruger American in the .22-250 also and going with a 55 grain Hornady V-max bullet or heavier?I'm currently using 2 different Rifles and they do just fine at putting down the Coyotes and other Predators with light fur/hide damage.I'm using a CZ model 527 "Varmint" in a .204 using 39 grain Sierra Blitz Kings and a Savage Axis XP Camo .223 with Hornady 55 grain V-max bullets.
I realize the 22-250 has a lot more "OOMPH" than my .223/5.56 and it would mean getting another set of reloading dies but that's no big expense.
After considering it I feel that the .243 Win. is just too close to my .308 to make it worth while. So 22-250 seems a perfect round for what I have in mind plus some gopher hunting.
If I want to shoot 'yotes at REALLY long distances or in winds above 10 mph. I can always use Berger 230 gr. Hybrid Match bullets in my .300 Win mag HS Precision competition rifle. That bullet will not expand but will kill them with the shock.
