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.

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?
243 it is!!!! what guns would you recomend im possibly thinking a "varmit" style rifle would be good since i mostly shoot from my truck or in a prone/seated position. i dont do very much walking with the rifle, i usually just set up and call them in or see them running in the field while im driving and try to take a shot(if its safe).
with the 243 how far is the killing range on yotes?
Ok i am now looking at 243 rifles in model 70, rem 700, and tikka. what one do you guys recomend(i do realize that it is all personal preference).

all thoughts are appreciated
