Bolt Action Firearm for Coyote Hunting?
 
I am looking for a low priced .223 bolt action firearm for coyote hunting. It HAS to be light... so Varmint rifles are out. Any suggestions?

They will not be cheap. Go the used route:
Remington Model 7,600,660, or 788. Good used ones will run in the neighborhood of 4 or 500$.

Why limit yourself to a bolt gun? I suggest you check out Rossi and NEF break actions. Light accurate and CHEEEEEEP. Scope mountable and slingable.

I'm reading between the lines here, but I'm assuming you are looking for the "run and gun" rifle?

ruger 77 in 223 comes in a lightweight version..

you can find one used for around 400 and new for little over 500.

I will second the NEF Handi Rifles.

How about a Savage?

to bad I have a sweet rem 600 .222 that plays hell on yotes ,but you probley would not want it .

One of the rifles I use for calling coyotes is a Rem 700 ADL synthetic. It's got a 24" barrel which helps milk a little extra velocity, AND keeps the muzzle blast a little farther from my unprotected ears. The matt black finish hides well enough, but a couple of my pards have camo'd theirs in a sage brush pattern that looks great.

I think that the best buy on the market right now is the CZ 527. They come with a single set trigger and the lite barreled one I got in .204 is a real tack driver. If your just wanting something cheap that will do the job the NEF single shot are real good for the money.

How about an old style Thompson Contender?
You can put barrels on it for;
.17
.22 LR, Mag
.357
.44
.204 Ruger
.222
.223
.250 Savage
.30-30
.284 (7-30 Waters)
.45-70
and more.
Barells come in 10", 12", 14", 16", 21", 23"
So if you buy one frame you can conciecably have all of these different caliber rifles and pistols simply by adding a new barrel.

Stevens
 
Have you looked at the Steven's line of rifles? I coyote hunt with a Steven's .233. It's a great bolt action rifle, built off the Savage line. It will run you just a little over $300. I picked up some spray paint at the hardware store and gave mine a custom camo paint job. It's a quality rifle at a very resonable price with the accuracy of the Savage line.

I've got to agree with Catfish The .204 is devestating on small game and recoil is next to nothing Mine is in Remington 700 but my oldest boy wants the CZ 527 after shooting mine, and he was a 22-250 freak, he says he is born again after playing with the .204 I also agree with the Nef Great gun with out going broke, gives a person a chance to play with other cal's you normaly would not have got to play with, if you had to spend 6-9 hundred a pop, pretty neat!!!
