Re: new to coyote hunting, 7mm-08 or .223?
Your 22-250 should be capable of shooting better than MOA, much better.
I don't know much about savage, never owned one; but I've got one of the earlier Remington VSSF models with NF 15X scope and Jewel trigger set at 10 oz. that is my #1 coyote rifle. You may not believe this, but it shoots 2" 3 shot groups at 400 yds, even 1 5/8" a couple of times (calm day off the bench) with my pet load (55 grn Berger MEF at 3750' per second).
If I were in your shoes with the Savage, I'd check into getting it bedded, recrowned, x-o scope, ect. because the 22-250 cartridge IS CAPABLE of better than 1 MOA with precision handloads.
