I use a Remmy LVSF in .223, but occasionally I'll bring the SBR out for the heck of it,,,
204 Ruger does fine...
22-250 is good too...
260 Ackley is a little bit much...
30-06 in the head is way too much...
223 is just right!!!
The absolute best coyote gun is the one you have in your hands when you see a coyote!!!
(Just realized it took me 7 years on NWFA to get to 1000 posts!)
My SBR is coming out this year for coyotes and deer.
11.5" 6.8spc 90gr bullet at 2700 fps.
I don't have an intermediate caliber rifle so either my PSL (3 taken) or my M44(2 taken) see the job done.
After they've been zombied they feel like a water baloon when you pick them up. So far only one exit wound about the size of the entrance hole also.
Savage model 12 VLP DBM in .243 with a Mueller 4-16X scope. Not much for packing around but then it saves you that last 500 yards of the walk anyway.
Mark I've got the left handed version of your rifle with a Bushnell 6500 2.5x16.
Remington 788 in 243 with 55gr Nosler ballistic tips 44gr IMR 4064. Have another 243 788 set up for deer using heavier bullets but have taken a couple with the coyote setup.
LOL I could shoot that. I shoot equally well with both hands/eyes a carry over from being born left handed and "converted" by a first grade teacher. My dad was a lefty so except for the levers and the pumps if I wanted to shoot one of his rifles I hand go left.
308 AR10 style custom build, shooting mainly at night so using a Pulsar digisight n750 gen4 night/day scope. Usually just use 140gr since most shots are only 100 - 200 yds where we hunt yotes.

I'd be embarrassed to show mine. Either my (1965) well used 30/30 Winchester 94, an off brand 22mag I bought 35yrs ago, my savage .223 or (160 acres of pine forest next to large wetlands) my G19 (only 1, so far).
There is nothing wrong with the Winchester 94. The pack easy and just work.
Hey gimpy, my dad has an "older than yours" 94 in 30-30. He found a load he worked up with speer 110gr. Hollow points that he affectionately calls his 30-30 coyote load. Back when he was still shooting quite a bit he could shoot 2inch groups at a hundred yards over the hood of a pick-up with the original open sights it came with. Thank you for bringing back some precious memories.
One of the reasons why I will likely never get rid of it is I have plenty of ammo from 4-5 decades ago. All the same. Squirrel or deer, it does it all. I have my good modern weapons, but that darn thing is what is sitting in the truck every day.
This little stick needs to get out to find some coyotes. Any suggestions as to where needs cleansing?
Oh sure, now you bring out the pretty new stuff. Sweeeeeet!
I have a rifle I would like to hunt them with. I can't say that I've actually hunted them because I can't seem to see any to shoot. Technically it's not a hunting rifle for them just a looking for them rifle.
