556/223 is an ar15 thing. No realistic getting around it. If your going something other than ar15 pick a better round especially in a bolt gun. Why gimp yourself

Get a 243 or a 22-250 or a 204.
223 is a good caliber but there are better ones out there for hunting coyotes.

We also are concerned about availability and cost of ammo. Though there is a rifle we're considering in 22-250.

Check Savage. They should have multiple guns within your criteria.

I have the MVP 20" and it is accurate. The bolt is not real smooth as it is modified to use the AR mags. Trigger is good. It is chambered for the 5.56x45 and has a 1:9 twist. I wanted a walking gun so I stayed away from the heavy varmint model.

I wouldn't recommend an AK type. Triggers aren't as nice, and I prefer the extra precision if I could only get a yote into the 300 yd range.

Savage and the Mossberg MPV would be fine as bolt guns. I built up an AR specifically for Coyotes. 16" floated barrel, to keep weight down, for moving from calling location to location. Nikon 3-9 scope. RRA trigger.

Talk with your LGS and see if they can locate a deal for you. Their involvement might help you a bit with the price...maybe?

if you reload, you can make the .223 a very versatile round. and for very cheap too.

Savage has a bunch of good options for what you're asking, model 10, 12, 110, Axis....all available in left hand.

I really loved my Axis in .223, shot better than it should for the price. 1 inch groups at 100 yards weren't a problem. they have a 5+1 capacity & they're popular enough now that there's some nice aftermarket stuff for them, boyd's makes a laminate stock for them now and adjustable triggers are available.

they sell for around $300 new here which leaves plenty of budget for accessories

And on top of that,..many of the makers that will ship directly to Your LGS will knock some off the Price because they know the Dealer needs to make some $ as well...so you will still see it at a lesser then MSRP...

So your wanting a LH bolt action for coyotes?

Other than my RRA Varminter AR15,my Savage 12 FLVSS is what I love to use.



And it doesn't shoot to shabby either!



Savage offers several different models in LH. The only negative I have with most Savages are the factory composite stocks. I change everyone I buy.
Tikka also makes some really nice LH models,but Beretta,USA will only import the T3 Lite model in the LH versions to the U.S.
Remington sells a couple LH heavy barreled models,but the SPS line is like the Savage,and the factory stocks suck,and need to be swapped out for optimum accuracy.
