.270 Win would be a good choice for both. It might be a tad overkill for coyotes, but shouldn't over penetrate to the point that you're blowing holes in hides.

Either way, you can pick up a Tikka in .223 Rem or .270 Win: http://www.berettausa.com/product/rifles/series_page.cfm?currentseries=63

Agreed. That would be a great choice. However he has a $300 price range. Tikka will run about 5 bills and then he needs a scope if he is so inclined....

i have a 22lr that i read on here i can use for coyotes as long as i get a decent shot at them... so i have my coyote gun... i thought it was too small, never thought of it...

I am now it the market for something a bit bigger, something that wont kill my sholder, but will be fun to target shoot with... blow a tin can apart

what is a good riffle that is cheap to shoot and acurate, and semi auto is nice also..

we have a 12 gauge and a 20 gauge, but the 12 is too much kick for me to target shoot and enjoy...

the 22 is nice, but i want something bigger...

the 300.00 price range is the kicker.. anything a few steps up from a 22 and still at a 22's price range?

Never hunted "yotes" but had a friend who would on occasion with a cousin on his farm .

He went the dual purpose route and hunted with a 25-06 for "yotes" and deer .

For those that might remember Guns n Ammos Bob Milek he was both a renowned handgun and rifle hunter who wrote many stories that included his sons . He claimed one of them hunted Elk every year with a 25-06 and never lost one .

You wont get one for $300 but you can get close with a Savage or Savage Stevens package Deal , I think I've seen them at Gunbroker New for around $350 including a Bushnell 3X9 scope .

If I recall correctly Ralph said he used 120 grain bullets for deer and 100 grains for the Yotes .

Used maybe? He could look around in the penny savers and pawn shops.

Savages aren't bad. A buddy has one that groups pretty well.

Semi-auto, step up from a 22, relatively cheap to shoot, accurate enough to
"blow a tin can apart", and under $300?

I'm gonna have to reluctantly agree. I just can't see him touching something with that kind of knock down power in his price range unless he comes across a screaming deal on a used weapon.

Probably your best bet shnorse!

I just remembered he could get a Saiga semiauto 223 new for that or maybe a tad less .

Stanley's Pro Shop lists them for $250 with a 16 inch barrel but they are out of stock at the moment .

GunBroker prob has some listed close to it though .

does any one from NY know if it is legal to get a larger then 10 round clip... they only sell with 10's... can i legally buy say a 30?

i am looking for a long gun, im not to fond of the AK style.. just looks too militaristic to me, and i dont like that style.. I also plan to carry this one on my quad in a gun boot... so a shot gun style would be ideal...

I can't believe i can get a 10/22 that seems to be loved by a lot of people in the low 200's... semi auto and all.. and as soon as you step up to the .223 calibers the prices sky rocket...

any other calibers that have low kick, and a cheap price tag?

During the Deer season in NY you cannot have more than a 5 round magazine in ANY gun. The Marlin .22 Mag clip fed bolt action is a fine gun for Coyote! Last I checked they were under $200 at WalMart.
