I am from South Dakota. I just recently bought a 7mm rem mag and love the gun. It is flat shooting and hard hitting perhaps a little hard for the whitetails in my area. I am looking for a smaller gun for deer, antelope, and coyote and saving the 7 mag for larger game like elk. I am curious to see what caliber I should look for. I am interested in the 22-250, 220 swift, and the 25-06. For coyotes I generally call in and sell the dog to the local fur trader. I want a gun that won't tear a dog up to bad but still has the velocity and power to take out a deer or goat in the open country at 250+ yards.
Thank You for your time,
P.S. Look forward to your insight!!
