+1 on the 6mm. Mines and older model 7 remmy. It's pretty hard to beat, as it fills the hole between the 243 and the 22-250 nicely. It'll do everything that that you need with the option of bigger critters. The only down side is the bullet sellection isn't as good as the 243 or 22-250.

Re: Coyote Gun

If you just want a regular old caliber that is to get ammo for then go with the 243 or 25-06. If you reload, I would get a savage in 6.5 creedmore. I don't shoot for fur so I go with the heavier guns for coyotes that still have little recoil. I want the coyote anchored right there no matter where you hit them.

The 243 is a good cal.for that range. I have used that cal. and a Burris 3x9 Fullfield ballistc plx with very good results on mule deer and white tail and coyotes,fun to shoot at a low cost.A adjustabe trigger on the Tikka 3 is something I would consider.I do have a Savage 223 and I miss that easy adj.My triggers are set at 2.3oz. My groups got better by adj. the trigger pull from 3.8oz.to 2.3oz.I just use a electronic fish scale to measure the trigger pull,slow and steady along the stock repeatedy,works for me.Have a Great Day.

Re: Coyote Gun

I have a 22-250 savage predator 10 max-1 with the accustock. I am shooting 55gr vmax's over 38gr of H380 win brass and cci BR2 primers. For a factory rifle, it consistently will put three bullets in the same hole with this load at 100yds. To say the least, it is freaking awesome! But on a side note, it is a savage. But I didn't buy it to make it a hot rod gun, if I wanted that, buy a remington and rebuild. It is a dedicated dog gun, so I dont mind if it gets a little dinged here and there. If you don't mind the fit and feel of the savage, don't hesitate to pick up one of their rifles.

Re: Coyote Gun

0-500 yards the 22-250 is hard to beat. Over 500 yds the 90-105 grain 6mm bullet will be hard to beat in an 1:8 twist barrel.
