    My votes for the .223.Its carried by most every ammo shop,flat shooting with low recoil and is easier on the wallet than compared to other varmit grade calibers like the .22/250 or .204.

      sounds like either cost of ammunition or saving hides? try .22 hornet

        I have to agree with bigjake for all the right reasons.

          .204 to .243 all work well. if ar format, 204 for follow up shots if calling areas are tight so yotes come in closer. low recoil in 204 allow multiple shots w/o target re-acquisition. best bolt cartridge, for all ranges, ie tight and wide open country, .243. 55 gr bullet at 3,900 fps has best ballistics and knock-down compared to any other (if your rifle likes it). 2nd choice 70 or 75gr bullet in 243. Swift can shoot smaller bullet faster, but not 55gr. I've shot multiple coyotes beyond 600 yards with this configuration and they were doa. best ballistic/knockdown for coyotes. 223 works....I don't care for ballistics (compare 55gr .223) rounds are cheaper...not important to me. I see yote rifle as sniper type...one shot, one kill...so cheaper ammo or bulk is not relevant to accuracy requirement....also not for prairie dogs...this is a best coyote configuration. it depends on what you want, ie how accurate, how far you wish to take out a coyote. Scope, quality 4-14 30mm tube at least, 3-18 30mm if you can afford.

            Its hard to beat the bolt action 22-250 savage! Shoots like a charm!

              Hands Down, I would use a 220 Swift. It's a fantastic FAST, FLAT Shooting round....

                222 and up to a 270 with a 110 Vmax. I've killed yotes with a 222, 243, 25-06 and a 270. For keeping ammo prices down, I'd go with the 223 and for long shots the 22=250 and 25-06.

                  I prefer tracking the yotes and carry a youth model Remington Model 770 in .243 WIN.

                    IMHO~~ You cant beat the 22/250 in a savage 110/111.

                      I'd say 22-250. It shoots very accurately and doesn't drop much. I've killed coyotes out to 300 yards and never had a problem with it.

                        Check out the Dec/Jan 2011 issue of outdoorlife and on page 44 they have a Thompson/Center Venture Predator(22-250 Rem.) I dont think youll get much better and its farely reasonable too!

                          So far, I've built a "bee vacuum" and a "swarm trap".
                          When I deploy the trap this spring, I'll need at least one hive....I hope!...
