Re: Coyote Gun

Seems to me it mainly depends on what kind of range you want. If you are gonna stop at 300 or a little more, maybe the 250 is the way to go. If you are gonna try to stretch it out to 4, 5, 600 maybe, depending on the bullet and load of course, then maybe the 243 is the way to go.

I have shot a 22-250, but haven't shot a 243 for a long time. Is there a lot of recoil difference between the two?

Re: Coyote Gun

Either caliber would be great for coyotes. If you are planning on a dual purpose rifle, the .243 is definitely the way to go. You might want to make sure you get the right twist for the bullet weights you want to shoot. Since you like Remingtons and are thinking about your kids, look at the Model 7 Predator. If you might not be that picky, look at the Savage model 10 Predator. Both guns are full camo and have a little beefier barrel than a standard hunting rifle but both are fluted to reduce some of the weight. The Savage has the accutrigger and is offered in different twist rates. I am not sure if the Remington is offered in different twist rates.
Just my 2 cents.
