I'm rather partial to the .243 Win. Mine does wonders with 70gr. bullets, either Ballistic Tips or TNT hollow points. However, even I must admit that pretty much anything between the .204 Ruger and the .25's will do just fine. The .223 and the .22-250 are probably the best choices for availability of both rifles and ammo.

22-250, .222, .223, and even a .243 are all good coyote guns within 400M.

What distances do you plan to shoot the dogs from? That will dictate what rifle would be best...

Well I own 3 Remington 700 long guns and they are all fabulous. I used to own a Savage in .308 and I never had any complaints!

at the distances you stated, any of the calibers suggested. plus i will throw in my favorite coyote caliber of years past, the 25-06 with 100gr bullets. flat shooting, accurate, very little felt recoil and easy to reload for. another that you might consider that i like and IMO should be a good coyote round, the 7mm-08, again very accurate, low recoil and easy to reload. maybe someone else has used this round before on coyote's could lend their input as to it's effectiveness on them.

7mm-08 is a great suggestion! Damn, I shoulda thought of that. Haha

I use my 6.5x55, 8x57, .44-40 all w/ cast lead for vermin. Very gentile killers.

I have a older Remington model 700 chambered in 243 winchester and it is one of my favorite rifles. It shoots very accurately, much more accurate than myself.
