    I am looking for a rifle with knock down power for coyotes but will be shooting in limited space area. What would you gun people suggest? Thanks much, Gatorbait

    Depends what you mean by "limited space." I would say a .223 would probably be the best all around choice.

      If by limited space you mean 150 yards or less, you might go with a 30/30 or even a 45/70. If you are shooting at greater then 150 yards I have always liked the 22/250.

        A 12 ga with buckshot works in limited spaces. Or any of the afore mentioned cartridges.

          I agree with JM, "limited space" can mean different things to different people. As far as I'm concerned though, you can't beat the .22-250 or the .243 at any distance.

            If limited space means quiet, a .22 mag would be a good choice.
            If limited space means you dont want them to run off, .300 win mag or other mag rifle. or a 12 gauge shotgun w buckshot

                Call them in close, and buck shot will drop them.

                  I like how the guys have been saying the .22-250. Maybe look into the .220 Swift or a .204Ruger as well. .223 is a nice cartridge with plenty of take down and there are so many varieties out there these days for you to choose from.
