I am looking for a small game rifle, but I don't know if buying a new caliber of weapon is really necessary. The biggest take would be a coyote. I have read the ballistics and just want to hear from people that have actually used them to drop live targets. I realize I could go with a .223 or 22-250, but I have noise restrictions as I'm on the outskirts of town. I have a few semi-auto 22LRs, could that be enough to drop a coyote at 50~100yds? Any advice or "life experience" shared will be greatly appriciated. Thanks in advance.
