I`m starting to look a rifles for getting rid of some coyotes. I came across the Ruger American in 243 just wondering if any of you has one and how you like it. I really don`t want to break the bank for a rifle that won`t get much use and will spend a good amount of time behind the truck seat so the synthetic stock will be preferred.

Plain Jane, they shoot well, and cheap.

The Mossberg Patriot is another to consider. Made in USA and has a great adjustable trigger. I have one in 270 laminate/stainless, beautiful rifle.

It's probably not a Bad gun for the price but I would get the Remington 700 sps tactical in .223 for $100 more. It's a better bang for the buck IMO.

I do not like that plastic stock on the Ruger. You will like the Hogue stock on the Remington in the truck.
