Default A good coyote gun for not a lot of $$$$$

Can you get a good varmit gun for say less then 350- 400 dollars. i dont have the money to buy anything really expensive in fact i think that 400 might be pushing it but o well. Should i look for a quality used one...whats do you think.The .270 i have will do too much damage. Thanks.

.223 would probably do just fine. Plenty of range and you can get a single shot for about$225 ammo cheap too

Buckhunter, I bought a .223 for just that reason. It's a New England Arms single shot. Pretty little gun, and it shoots well with good ammo. Mine was $179 brand new. They're a little more now, but still at or below $200. You can put a Bushnell scope on for about $100 and you're good to go.

the remington 700 ADL-synthetic is another option to the single shot.the last i check(about two years ago)you can get one brand new out of the box for around 350.places like walmart should be even less.

How far will your gun shoot accurately. Like say maybe with in 3 inch groups. I want a gun that can shoot atleast 200 yards at a coyote. Lots of fields where i hunt. Do they make those single shots in 22-250? Thanks for replying everyone.

Buck...the 223 is accurate to 200 yards. Shooting 55 grain V-Max bullets from Remington and sighted in at 100 yards, the bullet hits 2.5" low at 200 and 10" low at 300.

NEF used to make a 250, but I don't know if they still do. The 22-250 is one whale of a caliber. Sighted in at 100 yards, the 250 is only 8" low at 300, and still smoking.

The new Remington 710 comes with a scope for about $350 and is available down to a .243 cal. This may still be more gun than you want, but I've put down quite a few with a .243. By the way does anyone have any feedback on this model 710 from Remington. I am thinking of getting one for my nephew to use.
