What about the 22-250 or the 204 ruger they both are flat shooting rifles. They will drop a coyote at 600yards

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.
J.P.,I have 6-24x50 scopes on almost all of my varmint/deer/long range rigs,and have never had a problem finding/shooting any game at ranges as short as 20 yards.
It all comes down to knowing how to use your equipment.

My eye's aren't what they used to be,and I need all the help I can get past reading a newspaper.I used to get by just fine with 3-9's or 4-12 scopes,but I'll probably try to mount a telescope on a rifle in a few more years just to see things down range.LOL

In many states coyotes are not considered as game animals. You can hunt them any way you like that isn't a threat to people, pets or livestock. Call your wildlife resources office for more information.

600 yards? Shoot in brush country you'd be hard pressed to find 600 yards even on a power line! any of the sub .30 cals should work, I'd take either my .243 or .280 Rem......
