IMHO and experience, the 22-250 is an excellent round, which I used in Colorado for Praire Dogs. I understand that the Ruger 77's are fine rifles, but I have never shot one. My experience with Ruger has been all positive.

it depends on the ballistics you are trying to achieve. For example, on prarie dogs, I wanted reasonably long shots, and therefore, I tried to maximize flat trajectory. The commercial 22-250 rounds do not differ too much in trajectory, as I remember them, by bullet weight. But since the coyos are bigger animals, you would have a trade-off study, between energy left at the desired range[s], and flatness of trajectory.

Thanks

I need to do a little home work. As far as the distance it could be up to 500 yds.

straining the 22-250 at 500', unless you had a superduper load and superb sniper type optics. It would have to be an ultimate high pressure load, and even then, you would be holding at least 16" high.

is a Remmington XR-100. I've had this rifle for about 4 years now and have really enjoyed it. I picked it over any others because I really like the thumbhole stock and the LOP seemed to be perfect for me. And the trigger can be adjusted externally which is also a big plus. The only thing I would consider a drawback is the fact that it's a single shot. Other than that, great rifle. And the 22-250 is a great round IMHO.
