Default Inexpensive yet accurate Coyote and general predator gun?

Donít know whether to go with a .223 or .243 or possibly something else. Gotta have synthetic stock and stainless steel barrel. Iíll be out in all kinds of weather so it has to be rugged.

I built a nice one out of a Ruger ranch 223, changed up the cheap stock and there ya go. They shoot lights out any models.

223 ammo is going to be cheaper, And like boh said, you can build your own Frankenstein AR.
