Ballistic ally, 22-250 is superior, but that would only really matter if this was a bean field rifle. With the info given, I'd say .223.

.243 its a flatter shooting , longer distance gun and there is still ammo on the shelves for them . Its just a all around better yote gun.
I own one in .223 and its a great shooter just wish I would have gotten it in .243 for yote hunting

well than the .223 will be fine under 350 yards , Just remember .223 ammo is hard to get your hands on these days and when you do its expensive due to demand .
.223 I would zero it at 25 yards and that should keep you at 1.5" low at zero , 3.5" high at 150 and 12.2" low at 350
.243 25 yard zero will be 1.5" low at zero , 3.3" high at 200 and 6.8" low at 350
22-250 is going to be in that range of 1.5" low at zero ,4.7" high at 200 and 3.9" low at 350

Out of the 2 you choices you have picked I would go 22-250 the ammo will be higher at normal pricing but comparable to each other now with the price gouging I am seeing but should still be available on the store shelves from what I have seen
Oh the above calculation were used with Barnes triple-shock in each caliber

Shots no longer than 350yds. either cartridge will do the job on coyotes. 22-250 will be a bit flatter with more energy than the 223.
