    Spend just $100 more dollars and get a Savage BMag in Winchester .17 WSM. Your reward will come back in ammo savings. .30 a round instead of .50 or higher.

    .223. I own a .22 WMR, and it's a nice caliber for close-range varmints, but it just doesn't have the wallop to cleanly kill coyotes consistently, unless you're taking head shots. I hate to say it, but you won't find a new rifle in .223 in your price range though, so if that's all you can spend it'll have to be a used one. If you are willing to go a little higher, Savage and Weatherby both make good rifles in .223 for ~ $350-$500.

    At least you can buy 22 WMR bullets. You might have to throw the .223 at the coyote.

    I would always choose the 223. I like the 22 WMR but the 223 has so much more oomph.
