Default Coyote and Bobcat rifle

Im looking at buying a smaller caliber rifle for coyote and bobcats. Somthing that wont tear it to peices but something that will kill if if you hit it in the body. I dont want to spend a fortune on one and i wont be shooting more then 300 yards. Im looking at maybe $500 or less without scope and has to be bolt action.

On the cheaper side you can always look for a nice mosin and pick up a few spam cans of ammo for plinking and some match grade ammo for hunting.

Ops, I apologize, I should have read that a little more clearly.

I agree that a .243 would do a great job. I enjoy mine and it doesn't tear meat up.

A 243 also will knock either one rolling if you hit em anywhere in the chest cavity. As to a 223 or a 250 either will kill em dead wo a solid bullet pass through.
