What's your budget?

You can pick up a Remington 700 with a cheap synthetic stock and a scope that will hold a zero for under $500 at Walmart. Dont need a large round to take out a yote either.

Now if you got plenty of $$ A RRA LAR-15 or LAR-8 would make a great yote killer. Match quality barrels, wylde chamber, good recoil management, and you'll never run out of ammo for follow up shots unless you are dealing with an army of zombie coyotes.

I use a Rem 700 in .204 Ruger with Hornady V-Max ballistic tip, 4225 fps. Lights out Senor Coyote.

I hope to use my AR15 in 556 for coyote soon. I know that there are a lot of guys using that platform and caliber.

Don't know how far you plan on shooting, but my howa 223 with a 20 inch bull barrel puts three shots into the same tiny hole at 100yards.

Bought this one specifically for coyote,
It works.
Savage 11 Trophy Hunter, .223, comes with Nikon ProStaff 3x9x40 bdc,
accutrigger, composite stock, for under $500.

Oh yeah, it is a tack driver.

What did you do to the stock? Did it come from the factory like that?

I painted it.

Very easy process.
Paint a base coat of silver Fusion paint at WalMart.Dry 24 hrs.
Stretch fishnet pantyhose to your liking.
Spray Black fusion . Dry 24hrs.
Let dry 24hrs, remove pantyhose, spray 6 -8 coats of clear coat.
Dry 7 days, wax.

Easy.

I hunt with it, and range shoot it a lot, holds up great.

I did another one in tan base and 2 browns , looks like a Copperhead snake. FUN.
