The .243 in both bolt and BLR sorts out dogs, cats and foxes at any reasonable distance and the 12g drops any close in foxes.

204 ruger that i got when ruger first introduced the round, replaced the bbl with a 26 inch Krieger cause it wouldn't shoot better then 1 1/2 inches. Shoot 32 grain factory Hornaday

243 AI on rem 700 VS shoot 105g berger VLD's and 55g NOS B tips

Bushmaster Varminter "most accurate fire arm I own" this thing is bone stock and will shoot 5 shot groups that average .33 inches out side of hole to out side of hole and thats before you subtract the .224 bullet diameter. "sometimes a person gets lucky" 36g barns @ barely under 4k fps

.338 RUM, for really big coyotes. If I miss, it still scares them to death.

Re: Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

There were not enough choices to fit my needs and desires? The AR-15 is not the only semi-auto platform, you forgot the M-14NM, SR-25, M-107 and for close range, the Remington 1187- Master Blaster 12 gage.
But when those predators are trying to gang up on you, the Ma Duce works petty good at close to medium ranges. But for longer ranges and those extremely hard to get to varmints, nothing beats the G-5/52 and M-198 155 MM howitzers!
Bigger guns are more fun to shoot.

Re: Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

I selected AR and bolt gun but I've also used my 10ga. as well as my Encore. 22-250 (Encore), 243 (bolt, 6mm-06AI (Encore) and 6.5 Grendel (AR platform) I'm at the point in my life where I have a lot of guns and not near enough time to shoot them. Ten years till retirement!

What ever I happen to have in my hand at the time. But mostley the AR15, Savage 112 in .308 or the Mini 14 if I'm in the swamp and yes my Mini 14 is a shooter. 1.5 MOA at a 100 yds-perfect for the swamp where my longest shot is no more than 50 yds.
