The fact is he wants a good rifle that can do that if he wants to.
A 600+ yard gun in 223/25-06/7mm and such does just as well for 100 yard shots. He asked for recomendations, not more questions.
I have a question for you, a .223 at 600+ yards, seriously! As stated, Yotes can run. One issue the OP will run into as coyotes move almost constantly with a scope for 600 yard shots is finding them w/ a 6-24xXX at close range. When you jump a coyote it is usually less then 50 yards in this area. There are a few places that you can set up for 200 yard shots and call them in, but they usually sneak up close before you ever see them. A high powered scope is a detriment in that situation. W/ a 3-12 power the FOV is 48+ feet at 12 at 600 yards. That little 3-4ft long SOB is hard to find w/ that much FOV. How in the hell are you going to find one w/ a 24 power and 24' FOV when it's moving. I think Old Crow was being realistic, not a stick in the mud. If you're searching w/ your uber scope at 600 yards, a yote may sneak in, steal your lunch, hump your a$$, and be gone and you'd never see it w/ that scope. Keep it simple stupid, ever heard of it??
I'd love to use my Highpoint carbine, a great idea. Too bad they are 10 round mags, a no no.
