    what rifle is better to use for coyote hunting a 223 or a 22 250

  • #2
    The .223 and .22-250 use the same size bullet - .224. The .22-250 has more velocity and energy in foot pounds than the .223, which can translate into more recoil too. Both calibers will work fine on coyotes using the right bullet. The .223 would be a good close range caliber. The .22-250 would be a good long distance caliber.

      as johnnie said they both use the same type of bullet but it totally depends on if your in a woods or not use .223 it has a pretty good range but it won't "kick your ass" like a normal long range rifle

        I us a Savage 22-250 and it has never let me down. The ammo is more expensive than the .223 but I enjoy the extended range.

          The 22-250 reaches out alittle further but both will do the exact same job. A well placed shot from either equals 1 less yote in the woods.

            I have a Remington Model 700 SPS Varmint Left Hand in .223 and I love the gun because it doesnt kick you like a mule and it is cheap to shoot. I hunt groundhogs with it mostly and i shoot targets a lot with it. If Thompson Center ever makes a left handed Venture Predator I plan on getting one of them in .22-250 although it is a little more expensive to shoot I plan on hunting more with it.
