Prairie Coyote Gun

Looking for a new coyote gun. I will be shooting in the prairies, where it is usually windy, and i will need to be taking some fairly long shots at times. I also do some calling. I do not reload. Just wondering what you guys use and what you would use for the above criteria. I want a dedicated coyote/varmit gun.

I have three rifles I use depending on the area I'm hunting. If the weather isn't miserable I usually take a .22-250. Windy and rotten weather and those where I expect long shots, pick the Abolt stainless stalker in 25-06. Close in shooting with a chance of muliple targets a Colt AR in 5.56.

Most of the times I pick the wrong rifle for what i encounter but all will do the job.
ok, i guess i will most likely end up going for 243 or 25-06. Whats the diffrence in these guns beside the fact that you can load 25-06 to 120gr?
Guess the way I see it, the .243 is a good prediator and varmint rifle you can hunt deer with.

The 25-06 is a good deer and antelope rifle you can hunt prediators with.
