    I have a model 70ss winchester 22-250 shooting hornady 50gr vmax. I love it for yotes! IMO the 22-250 is hands down the best varmit caliber ever made! I also have a pre 64 model 70 243 that I like alot and have killed everything from bobcats to deer with. I would go with the 243 if you want to hunt deer with it too. I think the 22-250 is pretty light for deer and also 243 is the minimum caliber thats legal in some states.

    I forgot to mention, I absolutely love the .204 Ruger for predators/varmints. It would not work for blacktail however.

    It has ballistics very similar to a 22-250 in the same size bullet. If you guys haven't looked into it you should really check it out. Most fun centerfire I've ever shot.

    I agree the 204 looks like a fun little round! Although I have never shot one. Great for prairie dogs I bet! Im sure it would work fine on yotes too, but I have seen many times what my 22-250 and a vmax will do to a yote and I like it

    I use an ar-15 in 223 for coyotes. It is a great gun. I would also recomend the 22-250. I have killed a number of deer and coyotes with it.

    The 243 has been one of the best varmint-deer cartridges for as long as I can remember. I have killed two mule deer bucks and a cow elk with the 100 grain sierra boat tail. Some of the better shots on coyotes came from the 243 and a 75 gr. hornady vmax. A few years ago I got a 250 Savage Adams and Bennett barrel for my Model 11 savage. It came in a 24", and shot reasonably well with the 85 gr. combined tech. bullet. While I was cleaning it one time, I noticed a hard spot twords the end of the barrel. I kind thought the thing ought to be a little shorter any way, and sawed 4" off, recrowned it and ended up with one of the most accurate rifles I ever had. Not that the 250 is any better than the 243, but in a pinch the 115 gr. bullet makes a fine deer round as well. THis spring I will get a Savage Predator hunter in the 6.5 Creedmoor, that sounds like a good all arround cartridge as well.

    6mm Remington will work great for both deer and coyotes. I even have one elk to my credit taken with my 6mm and 100gr. Partitions.
